Disadvantages: A bit expensive, but look out for offers
Remember the days gone by when you had to make your own smoothie? First of all you had to buy all different types of fruit (or vegetables), but only a few of each. It was so expensive, as the shops never seemed to sell small portions, or if they did, you felt like a skinflint just buying a dozen grapes. Once you got it home, you had to wash and de-stone the fiddly fruits like apricots and plums. Apples? Well they SAID you could put the pips in, but who in their right mind eats apple pips right? Then the blender. Took ages to fit together, there was always a bit missing and the noise was horrendous. Then you poured out half a glass of slop which looked like the cat had just thrown it up. After you sipped the vitamins, making it last after all that effort, you had the task of dismantling and cleaning the blender. Phew!
Well cancel all that and buy Innocent smoothies instead. There are so many delicious combinations and textures, you'll never get bored with them. Innocent have gone to all the trouble of shopping, washing, blending and they've even done the washing up! Their smoothies contain real fruit and nothing else, so they provide 2 of your 5 a day. Great with breakfast, as a mid morning snack, a post-gym boost, enjoy them any time.
It is best not to have more than one smoothie a day, as the fruit sugar content (naturally present in the fruit) could cause damage to teeth in the case of excessuve consumption.
The price is a bit expensive, if I'm honest, but they are frequently on offer in the major supermarkets. The individual bottles work out even more expensive, so buy a reusable bottle to transport them of you're taking them to work or the gym.
Finally, if you're bored for 5 minutes, read the cartons. They're highly entertaining!
Summary: A delicious drink and snack in one. A great way to get 2 of your 5 a day
