Liz says: If I’m going to make a smoothie I love to add extras which make it even more worthwhile to drink. Besides the vitamin C and antioxidants in these low GI berries, I throw in spoonfuls of collagen and hyaluronic acid, as when consumed on a regular basis they can also help give skin, joints and bones a boost. Make this the night before to have an instant, energising breakfast in the morning. Just pour into a sealable container and chill. Don’t leave it in the fridge for too long, though, or the ingredients will start to separate. Stir well before drinking.

Method

  1. Put the berries into a mini food processor or blender. Add the collagen, hyaluronic acid and yoghurt and whizz until smooth.
  2. Add 200ml water and whizz again to blend all the ingredients together.
  3. Pour into a glass and serve.
