How To Make The Perfect Green Smoothie

I am addicted to green smoothies! They take a few minutes to prepare, are packed with ingredients that are alkalising, anti-inflammatory, detoxifying, full of fibre....and taste AMAZING! I love that a giant green smoothie in the morning (for breakfast or as a mid-morning snack) means that I have had a healthy dose of raw vegetables before lunch – giving me lots of energy.

Green smoothies are a brilliant way to start your day.

Here are some ingredients you can use to whip up your glass of green goodness!

Pick Your Favourite Liquid Base (2-3 cups)

Water

Coconut Water

Almond or Skim Milk

Choose Your Leafy Greens (3 cups)

Spinach (my favourite)

Kale

Swiss Chard

Beet Greens

Romaine

Arugula

Bok Choy

Add Some Fresh/Frozen Fruit (1-2 cups)

Banana

Mango

Berries

Orange

Peach

Pear

Apple

Grapes

Pineapple

Kiwi

Supercharge Your Smoothie – Add as many as you like! (1 heaped teaspoon)

Chia seeds

Flax seeds

Sesame seeds

Hemp powder

Bee pollen

Raw cacao

Maca powder

Spirulina

Chlorella

Nut butter

Add A Natural Sweetener – Optional! (1 teaspoon)

Agave nectar

Chopped dates

If this is a post-workout drink - add some protein powder to fuel your body and aid muscle recovery.

Blend It Up – Blend until smooth, serve over ice and make smug faces and inappropriate yummy noises.
