Who needs a Berocca when you can have a Blackberry Bounce?! This is the yummiest, bestest natural energy burst you can get. The high fibre content of this smoothie, thanks to the kale, berries and pear, mean the sugars from the date and orange juice won’t send your blood sugar levels crazy, so you’ll get a nice, long lasting burst of energy. Macadamia nuts provide healthy fats and help to lower cholesterol, and the lime juice and orange adds tang and softens the bitterness of the kale. Hello Saturday Morning!
