Ingredients:

Mix and match the ingredients based on the amounts below:

  1. Vegetable base: 1 large handful of leafy green veg such as kale, spinach or beet leaves.
  2. Fruit flavours: 2-3 different fruit or vegetables of different colours.  Berries, apples and bananas are great
  3. Protein: add in some protein to help your smoothie fill you up for longer: nuts are fab!
  4. Healthy fats: again, fats help to make the smoothie fill you up. Seeds and avocado are good options, or even coconut oil
  5. Liquid top up: water, coconut water or nut milk are good ideas to give your smoothie a nice texture

We recommend pouring your smoothie over ice to give it a luxurious, milkshake feel!  You can go wild with the ingredients and have as totally different smoothie every day of the week.  It’s a great way to increase your vitamins and mineral intake, as well as healthy fibre and nourishment for the skin, hair and body.
