Smoothies are a godsend when time is against you.
They take no time to make, even less time to consume and you can wolf them down on the way out the door – making them the perfect time-saving workout partner for our new Hot Streak challenge.
However, they come with a small caveat: a liquid brekkie loaded with fruit and juice can add up to a hefty sugar spike first thing in the morning. Too much in one go could see your energy levels crashing back down to Earth with a bump.
A smoother way to start the day is with one of these low sugar recipes from our partners at BBC Good Food.
