Green smoothie

Smoothies are one of the easiest ways to get a huge nutrient hit and tick off some fruit and veggie portions for the day. I tend to freeze all my fruit and veggies for my smoothies, because they taste so much better when they are ice cold. Give this recipe a whirl to replace your usual breakfast. I love having this smoothie after a morning work out. Summer and Corey are fans of this recipe too- parenting win!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup kale (frozen)
  • 1/2 cup mango/pineapple/papaya (frozen)
  • 1-2 bananas (frozen)
  • 2 tbsp milled linseed
  • 2-3 cups almond milk.

Method

  • Whack everything in a high speed blender and whizz until smooth!
  • Add more almond milk if the smoothie is too thick.

Food for thought: why is it called a smoothie and not a smoothy?
