January – I realise that green smoothies are not technically one food, but several foods blended together, however I’m completely in love with them at the moment and I want you to be too.
I was obviously a very good girl last year because Santa bought me a Nutribullet for Christmas. I did already have a blender, and a juicer, but the Nutribullet claims to be neither a blender nor or a juicer but an ‘extractor’ which is clearly completely different! Don’t juice it! Don’t blend it! Extract it!
You can of course make green smoothies in a normal blender so don’t be put off if you don’t have a Nutribullet (although you are allowed to be extremely envious).
Since I have been drinking a green smoothie on a daily basis, I’ve noticed that I have more energy, my belt is back to its pre-Christmas notch, and my skin feels a lot clearer. I haven’t really changed anything else, just added in a green smoothie every day. Read on for more health benefits.
I’ve been experimenting with flavours and ingredients and I’m sharing two of my favourite green smoothie recipes with you.
The first is a Kale and Apple ‘Mojito’. Ok, so perhaps not quite as much fun as an actual mojito but your liver with thank you much more for this one. I love the flavours of mint and lime together so I’ve created this combination with earthy kale, sweet apple and cleansing cucumber.
The second is Tropical Green Smoothie made with creamy avocado, refreshing Romaine lettuce, alkalising celery, lemon and cucumber, and juicy pineapple. It is heaven in a glass!
