Green Smoothie Recipe

be. Eat Clean Recipe Book — Posted 05/01/15

Get your green fix with this refreshing smoothie, the perfect way to energise your day.

I like to start my morning off with a green smoothie. The ingredients help to give you energy, protein, vitamins, amino acids and antioxidants.  It’s important to have variety and a two day break, so I have been trying a different combination every morning from Monday to Friday.

This is not a breakfast substitute; this is complementary to a healthy breakfast (like cereal, muesli or porridge.) 

4 of my favourite combinations

1. Banana, spinach and almond milk
2. Cucumber, pear, apple juice, lemon and mint
3. Coconut water, kale, banana and avocado
4. Kiwi, spinach, pineapple, coconut water and banana

Optional extras: Ground flax seeds (Omega-3 and fibre), psyllium husks (fibre), maca powder (energy, calcium), acai powder (antioxidants), almonds (protein, calcium, magnesium), oats (fibre, low G1, energy), parsley (immune boost, vitamins).

Sweeten with: Agave (low GI, regulates blood sugar), honey (flavonoids, antioxidants, antibacterial), medjool dates (B minerals, help metabolism)  

Tip: If you’re a beginner to green smoothies, start with a bigger fruit to veggie ratio.  A yummy green smoothie will be about 60% fruit to 40% veggies.
