This smoothie is quickly blended using berries of your choice, grapes, grape juice, honey and yogurt. It is so cool and refreshing that you might want to make a double batch for breakfast the next day. Simply keep it in the freezer and whiz it up when you’re ready.

It’s that easy: This recipe is great for using up the bits and pieces of fruit from the fruit sushi recipe.
