Green Smoothie

Green smoothies have been around for a while now - smoothies made of all the things you probably wouldn't want to drink with some added fruit to make it a little bit more appetizing. I hadn't tried one until a few months ago, mainly because of the colour but now I've tried one I can see why they are so popular. As long as you put a good amount of fruit in to balance it out with the veg, you can't really go wrong! It's a really refreshing drink and from this recipe you can make 1 large glass or 2 small glasses of smoothie. Here is the recipe I use:
  • 1/2 a mango (you could substitute this for pineapple if you prefer)
  • 1 handful of spinach (or kale)
  • 1 handful of cucumber
  • 3 mint leaves (and one for deco on top)
  • Fruit juice to sweeten to taste
  • 1 banana

    You will need a blender for this but I find that they don't have to be pricey - I got this Kenwood blender for £20 in Tesco which comes with 2 travel mugs and lids to take your smoothie with you on the go. You don't need to put anything in the blender in order, although I leave the juice until last. Once all the fruit and veg is in, just turn on the blender and blend until smooth! You can always add water if you prefer your smoothies runnier or for a bit of a kick, why not add a bit of ginger! Lastly, enjoy!
