The Green Smoothie

I have been making these smoothies for about 5 months now as I find them the easiest way to get all the right fruit and veg into me in one quick and painless drink! It fills you up for quite a while so if weight loss is what you are after then you could use one green smoothie to replace one meal – though I would never under any circumstances suggest you do any of those “detox” diets where all you drink is smoothies; it is not likely to last long and would be verrrry boring! Instead, when I am trying to be slightly more healthy, I have a good breakfast, followed by a green smoothie for lunch and remain satisfied till dinnertime. Here is one of my current favourite recipes; remember there are no rules when it comes to what you put into your smoothie just as long as the amount of veg outweighs the amount of fruit you put in. Fruit is still full of sugar so think of it as a way to make the veg taste a bit better in order to get it into you! I freeze sliced banana, spinach and kale so that it both lasts longer and makes the smoothie nice and cold.
