We’ve been enjoying some fabulous weather over the last few weeks and the warm weather can be a great time to look at your diet and fitness regime. Smoothies can be a great way to up your nutritional intake which is very important if you are undertaking more exercise than usual. They are also a great addition to a Summer detox. Here are a couple of my favourite Summer Smoothie recipes taken from Juice Tonic one of Soho’s hippest juice bars.
