Green Goddess Smoothie
I am back!! Happy New Year everyone. Sorry for the long break in posts, I really didn't plan to be away from here for this long but after traveling at Christmas, and taking a much-needed break, it took me longer than anticipated to get back into my normal routine.
I never really make many New Year's resolutions, and I certainly never do 'Dry January' because with both Mr. Whisk's birthday and our wedding anniversary in January it isn't really an option. Celebrations need Champagne, right?! I do however always get towards the end of January and start to feel like I need to cut back after the overindulgence of the festive period! So I have hit that point and am trying to cut back on the carbs and inject more fruit and veg into my daily regime. I don't actually eat a lot of fruit, it really isn't one of my favourite things, so when I want to try and up my vitamin intake I tend to go for a green smoothie like this one. Pineapple and lime is one of my favourite flavour combinations and I always try to include some spinach or kale to up my vegetable quota too. Super quick and easy to make and great for a quick weekday breakfast.
Makes 2-3 servings
1/2 Pineapple, chopped
1/2 Mango, chopped
2 Granny Smith apples, peeled and chopped
3 Large handfuls of spinach or kale
Juice of 2 limes
200ml Cold water
- Chuck everything in a blender and blitz until smooth. It's as easy as that!
- Enjoy whilst channeling your inner healthy goddess.
Tip: If you are short of time in the mornings then prepare and freeze most of the ingredients at the weekend and then just take out and blend when you need them.
