We love a good smoothie to kick-start the day and it doesn't get better than this detox version.

If you've overdone it at the weekend, feel under par or are simply just wanting a vitamin boost to keep you in tip top shape, this is the smoothie for you.

Kale is key to this recipe, a great veggie that is low in calories and packed with healthy nutrients. Fresh pineapple, yogurt, ginger and apple add flavour and even more goodness.
