Summer and smoothies go hand in hand. Whizzing up a load of fruit gives you a fast, convenient, healthful snack that doubles as hydration to keep you going pre- or post-yoga. You can customise any recipe by using your preferred non-dairy milk and/or adding a dash of spice. Cinnamon and ginger are two of my favourite add-ins.

One tip: Chop up a few ripe bananas and pop them in the freezer. That way you always have the base for a fresh smoothie.

Here are a couple of recipes that caught my eye recently. Visit Babble for more recipes!
