National Breakfast Week: Juices and Smoothies

Print Friendly

We don’t all have the time, inclination or appetite to eat a big meal every morning before we start the day.

Juices and smoothes are a great alternative; they’re healthy, sweet and filling enough to get you going at the beginning of a busy day.

As National Breakfast Week comes to a close, today we’re sharing a few of our favourite juice and smoothie recipes on Silversurfers.

Beetroot, Grapefruit & Apple Juice

  • 300ml store-bought juice or coconut water; cranberry, raspberry, apple and pomegranate all work well.
