Blackberries are a wonder for our wellbeing – even in a delicious drink like this! These juicy berries are bursting with vitamins and antioxidants to help you glow from the inside out.

Plus, ginger is one of Liz’s absolute musts, especially during the chillier months. Along with comforting warming flavours, ginger is also high in gingerol – a substance that is known to have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.
