I don’t believe in juicing (my reasoning: why on earth would you discard all that lovely fibre only to be left with high sugar juice??) – BUT, I do love a good smoothie! Smoothies are made in a blender (as opposed to a juicer) and retain all the lovely, glorious fibre of the ingredients used. Here, I blended high-fat, high-fibre avocado and added fresh raspberries to bring a sharp sweetness. This combo benefits with some additional sweetener (I used the fabulous Swerve®) and then some ice cold water to get the consistency just right. To make these an ultimate breakfast, I added MCT oil and collagen powder. Excellent.. tasty.. filling and so, so healthy. This recipe makes two large smoothies – and it takes less than 5 minutes to make. Enjoy!

In short, you need not subtract anything further.
