Green Monster Smoothie
By theboycancook, The Boy Can Cook
Green monster smoothies are becoming more and more popular, and I absolutely love them! Putting greens into a fruit...
- 1. Liquid (100-150ml) - you can use water
- your favourite fruit juice
- or milk. If you have a lactose intolerance or are just feeling particularly healthy
- then almond milk
- rice milk and soya milk are all great alternatives.
- 2. Fruit (good handful) - Whenever I have fruit that's so ripe it's starting to discolour
- I get it in the freezer before it has a chance to go bad. Got any bananas that are starting to brown? Peel 'em
- chop 'em
- bag 'em
- freeze 'em. Then when you fancy a smoothie
- the fruit is there
- frozen and ready to go. Use any fruit you like
- and play around with different combinations and colours.
- 3. Healthy fats (a good
- heaped teaspoon) - You need good fats in your diet and a smoothie is an awesome way of getting them. You can use peanut butter
- almond butter
- your favourite mixed nuts and seeds
- coconut oil or even olive oil!
- 4. Something sweet (teaspoon) - Honey or a couple of pitted dates works perfectly. Add spices too! For example
- a pinch of cinnamon works a treat with a banana smoothie.
- 5. Greens (a handful) - This is the clever bit. You can put a handful of leaves such as spinach (my preference) or kale
- which are both incredibly good for you
- and the sweetness and flavour from the fruit mean that you don't even taste the greens!
- 6. Ice (a few cubes) - Put these on top of the greens and they will weigh down the ingredients pushing them towards the bottom of the blender.
Healthy and delicious, these are a great treat on a hot summers day!
