Smoothies have climbed the ranks in recent years as one of the trendiest and most enjoyed breakfasts.

The question is, however, what makes the perfect smoothie? Believe it or not, there is a science behind the perfect smoothie, and if you are a perfectionist (like us) then you will also want to make sure your smoothie has everything in it that you need.
To be clear, there are no hard and fast rules when it comes to making your smoothie – it can be whatever you want it to be.
However, these building blocks of the perfect smoothie will make sure that you make the best smoothie of your life, every single time.
