You need to be properly fuelled before you go surfing - particularly if you're heading in for a dawnie.

However, you often don't feel like eating a proper meal before you get straight in the water, right?

How To Make Your Own Chocolate Peanut Butter Energy Balls

We've put together a series of pre-surf smoothies that will get you fuelled up for your surf session.

First up: the classic fruit smoothie. We've picked strawberry, blueberry and banana for their antioxidant levels - plus they are really filling!

We used a NutriBullet to make our smoothies, because they are super easy to use and clean - plus they really pulverise the fruit, so you're not left with any lumpy bits.

Surf Smoothie Strawberry and Blueberry


Makes approximately two smoothies

  • 1 banana
  • 100g blueberries
  • 100g strawberries
  • 100ml low fat Greek yoghurt
  • 100ml coconut milk (or almond/soya milk, if you prefer)

Chop your banana. Wash and hull the strawberries and the blueberries. Pop all three in your blender. Add the Greek yoghurt followed by the coconut milk. You can use almond or soya milk instead, if you prefer.

Whizz together and pour into a glass of your choice. It's best to drink this smoothie the day you make it.
