For me, I don’t really like my green smoothies to taste like vegetable juice!
You know, the ones that are made from *just* spinach, kale, apple, celery and coconut water. To me, they are not really smoothies.
I prefer my green smoothies to be a bit more like a delicious, creamy milk shake!
Most of the time I will “skip” the usual breakfast of eggs, avocado, bread, oats, granola and fruit, and have one of these smoothies for breakfast. Then follow it with a bowl full of nuts and seeds as a snack. Then have a filling lunch.
Or I might have a full breakfast, then have a green smoothie for lunch. It’s pretty filling!
Anyway, after lots of trial and error, I’ve created my favourite recipe! Hope you like it!
My Favourite Green Smoothie
Half an avocado
Half a small pear
1 cup of spinach
Slice of pineapple (I buy canned pineapple and keep the rest in a glass bowl in the fridge)
1/3 cup of natural yoghurt or vanilla yoghurt
1/2 teaspoon of lime rind
1 cup of coconut water
1 teaspoon of honey (optional if you like your smoothies a bit sweeter, or you could use the whole pear, or 6 green grapes).
Whiz everything up on a high speed blender and enjoy!
