Go-To Green Smoothie

Green Smoothies don’t have to taste like you are drinking your front lawn. It is just about getting the right balance of greens and some sweetness. To make life easier I portion out smoothies and freeze them. You can then just grab one in the morning, blend it and head out the door. 

 

Ingredients

  • 2 Handfuls of greens – Like Kale or Spinach
  • 1 Handful of sweet fruit – Like Mango or Pineapple
  • 1 Handful of something creamy – Like 1/2 Avocado or 1 Banana or a cup of Coconut meat
  • Liquid – I use whatever i have in the fridge. Usually Coconut Water or coconut milk. How much you use depends on how thick you want your smoothie to be.

Optional Extras 

I like adding some of my ‘superfood’ powder just to get some more – I add 1 tsp of a mix blend that has wheatgrass, barleygrass, chlorella and spirulina. 

I also like adding nuts and oats to my smoothies to bulk them out a bit and make them more filling. I usually add a small handful of cashew nuts (or a spoon of nut butter like almond / cashew butter) and 2 tablespoons of oats. 

These are completely optional! 

 

Directions

  1. Put all of your ingredients into a blender (I use a NutriBullet)
  2. Add your chosen liquid –  to make it nice and thick add a little at a time till you get the thickness you want. To make it more like a ‘drink’ add enough liquid to cover the contents and blend away.

I hope you find this useful!
