Dr Clayton says

Try this ‘smoothie’ as a dessert or a nutritious and filling ‘snack drink’ between meals. It provides 2 portions of your “5-a-day” fruit and veg.

The banana contributes pre-biotic fibre, and live yoghurt is a pro-biotic; together they maintain the healthy bacteria in the gut, and promote general health in the gut and bowel.

Strawberries are a rich source of Vitamin C, and contain some anti-cancer flavonoids.

Bananas are also high in potassium, which has been reported to reduce blood pressure.

Low fat yoghurt and skimmed milk contribute calcium, without the negatives of high saturated fat.
