1.   Add all of the ingredients into the Vibe Blender jug
2.   Blend on ‘smoothie’ mode for approximately 40 seconds or until smooth.

3.   Pour into a bowl then add a sprinkling of nutritious toppings.
4.   Enjoy right away. Left overs can be stored in the fridge for 2 days. Even when the fruit has defrosted the texture continues to be mousse-like.
