Strike a Pose Smoothie
"This smoothie is a Sunday morning special at my place. Its like a berry, mango, coconut dessert - my little boy slurps it up. The frozen mango and coconut make it a really yummy and fresh. I buy a crate of mangoes in summer and freeze the chunks for winter." – Sigourney Cantelo.

“This smoothie is full of beta-carotene that is fabulous for glowing skin and boosting immunity. I love the inclusion of maqui and acai – both ‘superfoods’ with huge amounts of anti-oxidants to help fight nasty free radicals in your body. It’s a beautiful combination of flavour and nutrition.” - Janella Purcell.
