Very Berry Summer Smoothie

Summer is the time when it is good to eat lighter and when the weather is as hot and sticky as it is right now, I often don't feel like eating anything much, so a smoothie packed with summer berries for breakfast is a really good start to the day.

I love berries of any description, for this smoothie I used blueberries, raspberries and strawberries, all of which are prolific in the shops right now.  Pomegranate juice, full of heart healthy antioxidants, avocado and a potassium rich banana. 

1 cup blueberries, raspberries, strawberries (or more or less to suit your own taste)

½ banana

1 small avocado - cubed

50 ml pomegranate juice

50 ml  coconut water (or water)

juice of  ½  lemon or lime (optional)

few cubes of ice, to your own taste, I blend 3 or 4 then add a couple of cubes
to my glass for a lovely cool, refreshing drink, full of antioxidants, vitamins and good fats from the avocado.

Blend, sip slowly and enjoy!
