Melon and grape smoothie

Great for a hot summer’s day, this low-fat smoothie from Jacqueline Birtwisle is refreshing and nutritious!


This melon and grape smoothie is an easy-to-drink contribution to your overall carbohydrate intake for the day – as well as cooling you down when the temperatures rise.

It’s a great source of potassium, vitamin C and vitamin B6 – and for even more vitamin C and antioxidants, add some chopped strawberries and a dash more juice.
