A smoothie is a drink made from pureed raw fruits and vegetables, in this case, pineapple. Depending on what you put into your smoothie, they can be full of nutrients and flavour.

Many people do not consume the suggested five-a-day portions of fruits and vegetables.

However, by blending yourself a smoothie made up of fresh fruits, leafy green vegetables and superfoods, you can boost your intake of vitamins. This will help to strengthen your immune system.

This combination of pineapple and celery has a refreshing taste and the banana gives it a creamy texture.
