We all agree that we should consume our fruits and veggies as a part of our 5-a-day, don’t we? But at times, it can be challenging to meet this target. 

So, having fruit or vegetable smoothie can be a good option, don’t you think? Because all you have to do is pick the ingredients that you love, put them in a blender and just whizz it up for a minute or two. And you can drink it in a mere five minutes 😄.
