3.Berry Delight Smoothie

4. Pina Colada Smoothie
“This smoothie is an all-time favourite that brightens up my day and hints to the coming warmer months. It can trick you into thinking you’re on a tropical holiday while you sip away at it for breakfast or lunch.”
Rebecca says she loves to enjoy this smoothie a little thicker – so she adds in half a banana and extra ice to turn it into more a sundae. Sometimes, she even adds shredded coconut on top.
