    • Large slice of watermelon
    • Banana
    • Half  med mango/nectarine (optional/seasonal)
    • Handful of mixed frozen berries (fresh strawberries/blueberries if available)
    • 1 apple, thinly sliced
    • 1 carrot thinly sliced
    • Small sliver of beetroot (according to taste)
    • Heaped teaspoon of chia seeds
    • Juice of half lemon or lime
    • Pure filtered water or coconut water is nice

Put all ingredients in a powerful blender with a cup of water (more/less water depending on the consistency you like) and WHIZZ!

Best to drink immediately but can be kept in the fridge – covered for several hours if necessary.  If left in the fridge, you will probably find the chia seeds will swell and thicken the juice so you may need to add a little bit of extra water.

Hey presto – happy, healthy family in 5 minutes.  Think about all the good you are doing for your body.
