Fresh Green Smoothie

Beverages

Oh the amazing power of greens!

Energy, antioxidants, blood purification, fibre, vitamins...

So heathy and so healing. 

Blending greens into a smoothie releases even more essential nutrients that we don't always get when eating them whole.

This Fresh Green Smoothie has the perfect name - it is super fresh and light with a dash of mint and a touch of sweetness. It is not as thick as a typical smoothie and is almost more of a juice - I like to have it for breakfast with a side of apple and almond butter or take it to go with a Super Seed & Nut Square

It also makes a perfect, light and energizing afternoon snack!

Enjoy...

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1/2 cup chopped cucumber (about a 2-3 inch piece)
  • 1 cup packed baby spinach or kale
  • 7 - 10 fresh mint leaves
  • 1 Tbsp hemp seeds
  • 1 cup frozen pineapple

Tips & Nutrition

This smoothie is more like a juice when blended. If you would prefer it a bit more creamy you can add 1/2 an avocado or frozen banana. 

You can amp up the protein by putting in a scoop of vanilla protein powder or adding an extra tablespoon of hemp or pumpkin seeds.

Method

Blend everything together in the order they are listed in a high speed blender until well combined.
