Milkshake and smoothie recipes: chocolate, vanilla, strawberry and banana

You've probably noticed that the smoothie industry has boomed in recent years. Nut-mylk beverages topped with chia seeds and drunk from glass jars feature heavily in Instagram feeds. And any self-respecting cafe has at least one smoothie bowl on the menu.

So whether you're partial to vanilla malt or an all-out green smoothie enthusiast, these recipes will take your blended beverages to a whole new level.
