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.
- 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.
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!
I hope you find this useful!
