Carrying on from yesterday’s post, as promised, below is one of my favourite green smoothie recipes. Even if you are a ‘virgin green smoothie drinker’ I can almost guarantee that you are going to like this one.
There are 5 steps to take to successful smoothie making:-
- Choose your green leaves (spinach, silverbeet, kale etc);
- Choose your base (coconut water, purified water or apple juice);
- Choose some fruit (no more than two if you don’t want to overdose on sugar);
- Add some zing (lemon or lime juice);
My mango and spinach smoothie went something like this:-
Handful of ice, cup of water, squeeze of a lemon, bunch of spinach and a whole peeled and chopped mango. Blend! Easy eh?! I love to add ice to my smoothies, makes them feel like more of a treat. Add more or less water depending on how thick you want your smoothie to be. If it’s too powerful, use less greens next time until you get used to it.
