Category:

Need a pick-me-up after a rough night? Ditch the booze and reward yourself with this refreshing, slushy version of the traditional Bloody Mary instead! It’s soothing and nourishing, ideal for a hot summer’s day. Perfect for your lazy Sunday breakfast or brunch!

Adding yoghurt and ripe avocado amps up the nutrient value, and since it’s high in potassium and magnesium, it’s a fab smoothie for alleviating morning sickness or PMS symptoms. The probiotics in the yoghurt are very effective against nausea.

Avocados are an all-round wonder food, containing many vitamins and good fats. The high levels of folic acid and B vitamins make them a particularly good choice for pregnant women. Read here about the nutritional benefits of avocados: Why avocados are good for you

Use frozen plain yoghurt if you have some, to get the full ‘slush puppy’ effect.

(If you still feel like adding a tot of vodka, hey, I’m not stopping you!)
