Start your day with an organic green smoothie to flood your body with healthy nutrients!
Green smoothies are a great energizing way to start the morning and incorporate the goodness of greens with the sweetness of fruit.
To make a great green smoothie mix about ⅓ or less green leaves and 2/3 fruit (except melons) and a bit of water. Flavourings can be added as needed (ginger, mint, lemon zest). Smoothies should not be strained. Do not add melons, vegetables (except green leaves), nuts or seeds.
It’s best to alternate between different kinds of greens – spinach, mint, coriander, celery greens, spring onion greens, pak choy, beetroot greens, basil, betel leaves etc. Bananas, mangoes, papaya, chikoo, grapes, passionfruit and other pulpy fruits make good smoothies.
Here is one basic recipe.
Place the green leaves in the blender with enough water to blend. Blend till smooth green soup. Add the bananas and other fruits. Add a couple of cubes of ice if needed. Enjoy!
Variation: Replace one banana with any other fruits.
