Recipe tips
  • Experiment with different herbs, such as mint or coriander. Works best with a combination of complementary herbs.
  • Try using lettuce or watercress in place of spinach.
  • Freezing instructions: Suitable for freezing before adding the herbs, avocado and yogurt. Defrost in the fridge then add the herbs, avocado and yogurt and blend.
