Smoothies are a good way of getting a few of your 5 a day, and in winter especially, it is important we take care of ourselves inside and out, in particular all the oldies out there.
It's a horrible thought that in times as developed as they are now, some elderly people cant afford to keep themselves warm on these cold winter nights due to ever increasing heating bills.
However, there is hope at the end of the tunnel, the people at Innocent Smoothie have been raising money every winter since 2003 for Age Concern, to help keep old people warm at winter by selling bottled smoothies with knitted hats.
I found out about this a few weeks ago and got my knitting needles out.
Here are my mini creations:
Unfortunately the deadline for submissions is Friday 14th October, So its too late to send any more, but, you will be able to buy the hatted smoothies from the 2nd November For 3 weeks in most Sainsburys stores, and from the 9th November at Boots.
