  • Celebrity trainer Harley Pasternak's white smoothie breakfast

    Smoothie tips ● Be sure to leave the skin on the apple for the fibre boost. ● It's also a good idea to buy a couple of extra bananas, peel them, and throw them in the freezer for future smoothies. ● Smoothies blend faster if you add liquid first. If you like your drinks thinner, feel free to add ice cubes or cold water. This is a great way to increase the volume without adding to your caloric load. 
 Ingredients 5 raw almonds, whole or chopped
 1 red apple, unpeeled, cored and chopped 1 small banana, frozen and cut into chunks

  • Celebrity trainer Harley Pasternak's red smoothie lunch

    Harley says: "Although nothing beats fresh berries for a snack, frozen fruit is an essential standby for making frosty smoothies all year round. Flash-frozen fruit has the same nutrients as fresh fruit, as long as you choose brands that have no added sugar. Feel free to mix up your berry choices – strawberries and blackberries work just as well.

    This is a great way to add leafy greens to your diet. Here, spinach is paired with sweet grapes and pears, creamy yoghurt and avocado, and a splash of lime juice. For best flavour, select a ripe pear for this recipe. Harley's tip: "Since you are using only part of the avocado, store 
the remainder for your next two rounds of green smoothies. Carve out a slice, then tightly cover the leftover avocado
 in cling film and refrigerate until you need it again. It will keep for several days in the fridge." Ingredients 60 g / 21⁄4 oz spinach leaves
