Try this sweet green smoothie that packs in plenty of nutritious ingredients, including maca powder, ground flaxseed and a scoop of smooth almond butter. The cinnamon adds a slightly sweet, spiced note. If you're prepping in advance, a squeeze of lemon juice will stop your smoothie oxidising and turning brown overnight. 
 

2. Strawberry green goddess smoothie

Wholesome spinach and tangy berries pair perfectly in our strawberry green goddess smoothie. Give yourself a dose of calcium, vitamin C, folate and fibre to start the day. Simply blitz everything until smooth; the avocado will give your drink a deliciously creamy texture and the yogurt will thicken the mixture. If it's too thick, try adding a little water until you reach the desired consistency.
