This makes a great summer breakfast or snack and can be kept in an airtight container in the fridge for 24 hours. 50g (handful/a cup) almonds, 1-2 cups water, avocado, raw honey, apple, banana, handful of strawberries, raspberries, blueberries

1. Soak a handful of almonds overnight (or for 12 hours), drain and rinse.
2. Put almonds in a blender with 1 cup water
3. Whizz up for 2-3 minutes. Option1: add ½ an avocado and a chopped apple. Blend until creamy. Sweeten to taste (1 tsp raw honey) Makes 1 large glass. (This makes a good base smoothie which is lovely on it’s own or you can add extra fruit as for option 2.) Option2: add a banana and summer strawberries, raspberries and or blueberries (if you can’t get fresh, you can use organic frozen berries). Blend for a further minute. Add up to 1 more cup water to thin to desired consistency. Makes 2 large glasses.
