Flavour of the Month: Energising Green Smoothie
Green drinks (either juiced or blended) are an easy way to consume a ton of nutrients that benefit your mind and body. But let’s face it, some of them are just gross! Jess, our very own nutrition expert, has concocted a clean, green citrus blend that tastes delicious AND gives you energy. Perfect for a speedy breakfast or a refreshing boost later in the day.
Energising Green Smoothie
Prep time: 10 minutes
Shelf life: 1 day
2x large oranges
Large handful of frozen pineapple
Large handful of baby spinach
1 tbsp hemp seeds
1 tsp spirulina
- Cut all of the fruit in half to make it easier to juice.
- Using a juicer, extract the liquid from all of the juice.
If you don’t have a juicer, use a blender; you can strain the drink through a fine mesh sieve (or even a clean tea towel!) if you want less fibre.
- Add the liquid, frozen pineapple, hemp seeds and spirulina into a blender.
- Blend until smooth*.
*Sometimes frozen fruit can make the mixture turn quite slushy, so if this happens just add a little bit of water or plant-based milk to break it up!
