Grab the Greens Smoothie

smoothie, greens, breakfast

Serves 2, prep time 5 min

I first adapted this recipe from Vegetarian Everyday Cookbook. This version comes out very thick so can be eaten with a spoon, if you want it thinner juice your apples first or add a little water. Don’t be put off by the strange sounding combo of ingredients, it tastes divine! It you can’t find cavelo nero, kale or spinach will work well.

Full of all sorts of goodness, brazil nuts for selenium, ginger for warmth and circulation, spirulina for iron and protein, maca for immunity and hormone regulation its your daily dose of super charged super foods.

 

Recipe

2 large apples

Juice of 1 lime

1/2 avocado or banana peeled

10 brazil nuts soaked 2-6 hours

1 handful sprouted mung beans or lentils

1 cm piece of ginger, grated

4 mint leaves

2 cavelo nero leaves, de-stemmed and chopped

½ tsp spirulina or barley green powder – optional

1 tsp maca powder

 

Cut and core apples, drain and rinse the soaked brazil nuts. Place all ingredients in a high powered blender and process until smooth, pour into glasses or bowls and top with fresh fruit.
