The two new mixes, Superfood and Energy Boost, each include mixed salad leaves and vegetables as well as a sachet of seeds and dried fruit.

The Superfood mix contains spinach, beetroot, carrot, ruby chard and a sachet of sunflower, pumpkin and hemp seeds and dried blueberries, while the Energy Boost comprises beetroot, spinach, baby kale, ruby chard and a sachet of sunflower and flax seeds, and dried cranberries

Buyers are suggested to also add half a mango or a handful of raspberries and a favourite juice.

Brand manager Rebecca Walker said: "Consumers are looking for tasty options that are fresh, convenient and nutritious, and our Smoothie Mix range is just that.

"Our expansion into the smoothie market presents the opportunity to reach a new audience, who may not have tried our products before, as well as offering exciting new options for existing consumers."

The range will be available through online retailer Ocado at £1.50 per bag.
