Introducing The Green Smoothie

Many of you may already be drinking green smoothiees regularly, we’d love to hear what you mix together? If you have never tried this and have a blender at home, making a green smoothie in the morning takes about five minutes and is a very mindful way to start your day.

A nice smoothie combination to try is:

  • 2 handfuls of baby spinach
  • 2-3 cos lettuce leaves (or more if you want extra greens!)
  • some mint leaves (optional)
  • 1 banana
  • 1 pear (peeled)
  • 100mls water (just to cover the bottom of the blender)

I also thought it sounded weird when I was first introduced to it, give it a go, you won’t look back.

Some variations on the same theme include:

  • adding half an avocado
  • using frozen banana coated in coconut (you need a powerful blender for that)
