Smoothies are a convenient and simple way to take in plenty of fruit and vegetables – and they’re just what you need to get your body ready for the warmer weather after the winter binge.

When sweetening your fruity fusion, steer clear of sugar to make sure you don’t cancel out the health benefits. Sugar alternatives mean you can keep things healthy and sweet at the same time.
