Innocent Drinks is introducing its first banana-free smoothie in response to calls for a thinner drink.

The green smoothie, which is rolling into Sainsbury's this week and other multiples in mid-April, is made from kiwis, apples and limes. It will initially be sold in one-litre cartons (rsp £2.99) and 250ml bottles at the end of next month (rsp £1.75).

"A banana-free smoothie is our most received consumer request," said commercial director Giles Brook. "The green variant is very different from the rest of our range."
