Chilled juices & sweet smoothies

Delicious, chilled juices and sweet, tasty smoothies – what’s not to like? Especially now when the summer heat has finally shifted over the Scandinavian latitudes. The variations are endless, the nutrition factor is high and it has never been easier to get our children to eat a whole handful of fresh spinach without turn their nose, but instead be delighted by its taste and then, yes, this is true – ask for more!!

Here are some of our favourites. Try them or let them inspire you to your own favourite combinations.
