Step by step this way
  • 1.

    Scrub and roughly chop the carrots (no need to peel them) and add them to your blender. Peel and break in the banana.

  • 2.

    Crush the cardamom pods in a pestle and mortar to open them up – or pop them into a bowl and crush them with the bottom of a jam jar. Remove the husks, leaving the black seeds in the mortar or bowl. Roughly crush the seeds then tip them into the blender.

  • 3.

    Drop in the dried apricots and a few ice cubes. Pour in 330ml oat drink (save the rest for this week’s other smoothies). Blend till smooth, then pour into 2 glasses to serve.
