"Radiate from within with this colourful juice that’s perfect for breakfast. The avocado in this smoothie makes it dreamily creamy and smooth but also adds some much-needed healthy fats. Pineapple offers plenty of tropical flavour while the mint freshens it up," says Christian Coates.
Health: As well as delivering plant-based nutrients, avocados offer the right amount and combination of dietary fats, including the monounsaturated fatty acid oleic acid.
Top tip: If the smoothie is too thick for you, add a little cold water to thin it out.
