Place the fruit which you have cut up into pieces into a NutriBullet or a food processor. Add one table spoon of Manuka honey or any natural honey if you would like. Add half of the unsweetened soya milk in your NutriBullet, and once properly closed, blend all the ingredients together.
Enjoy your smoothie!
