Today I decided to finally have a go at a ‘green smoothie’. I bought some curly kale the other day and I am determined to start leading a healthier life (as of 1st March – and maybe not whilst we’re at Disney). I have started to drink water every day instead of juice and tried to stick to the ‘healthier option’ for mealtimes.
For this smoothie, I used the following ingredients;
• 2 handfuls of washed kale
• 2 bananas
• A handful of blueberries
• A handful of raspberries
• 300ml of coconut milk
• 6 big ice cubes
• 60ml of fresh orange juice
This smoothie was quite thick (I prefer them thick) but next time I think ill definitely add more juice or maybe some water just so it’s a bit easier to drink. Jax liked having some though and it was really yummy. Which is good for me because I’m not a massive fan of green vegetables :\
I think I’d also try using some almond milk/soy next time; as I’m lactose intolerant I don’t tend to use milk or yogurt in my smoothies. I don’t like soy milk on it’s own but it could be different in a smoothie!
Has anybody got any other ‘green’ smoothie recipes to share?
Love, J xxx
