Green Smoothie {Recipe Formula}

May 3, 2016

I love a good recipe formula. Once you have the hang of it you can mix and match according to what you are craving and what's in your fridge.

 

Smoothie base- a cup of

coconut/ filtered water

unsweetened almond/ rice/ coconut milk

chilled green/chamomile/robibos/rosehip tea

 

The add a cup or two of green leaves:

Kale/rocket/collard/ beetroot/lettuce/spinach leaves

 

Then pick one or two of these

1 medium carrot/beetroot/broccoli/zucchini/celery

1 medium orange/apple/pear/grapefruit/stone fruit

2/3 cup berries/diced any melon/pineapple/ papaya/ bannana/ mango

 

And one of these nourishing fats/protein sources for sustanance

1 tsp nut butter

1 tsp coconut oil

1 tbsp avocado

1 free range egg

 

Boost flavour with one or more of these

1 small knob of turmeric or ginger root

1 tbsp green superfoods / green tea/ protein powder ( I love Bare Blends Paleo or Sun Warrior vanilla)

cinnamon/ vanilla essence

 

Blend with a 1/2 cup of ice and enjoy!

 

Tips and tricks

-Keep frozen berries, zucchini, mango and bannana in freezer for a creamier smoothie. You can make ahead in blender cup and just add liquid in the morning.

-Use ingredients according to the season. I love a zingy lemon/pineapple or mango kale based smoothie in summer, but choose a thicker avocado, bannana spinach combo to nourish me through the winter months
