I’ve been drinking a green smoothie regularly  for the last year and I have to say it’s something just makes me feel better. Like everyone, I have ups and downs – but when I break my morning smoothie routine – I miss it – and always get right back into it. Green smoothies give me more energy, I feel full longer and I get in fruit and greens that I wouldn’t otherwise! And, when you get the recipe right – it’s delicious! This is one of those recipes 🙂


Peaches – it’s peach season – so you’ve no doubt seen them in your supermarket! Not only are they insanely delicious – but they’re also a low calorie treat that’s packed with vitamins and antioxidants. Bring home some peaches – use a few in this smoothie and the rest to make this cobbler!

Raspberries – low glycemic, (which I think is important for smoothies – you don’t want to load up on too much sugar!) berries are also nutritionally dense! You’ll get a boost of antioxidants and anti inflammatory benefits. Their health properties are highest when the fruit is ripe – which makes frozen a good idea since they are picked at their peak and flash frozen – keeping all those great benefits intact.

Lime – gives your smoothie a burst of freshness. My favourite is the Tahitian lime, which if you can find it – is sweeter and less sharp than other varieties. You’ll also get a good dose of Vit C which is our beauty vitamin.

Coconut – the water makes the base of our smoothie – a great way to hydrate the body with electrolytes. The meat will give your body some healthy fats, that it needs to function well and it gives our smoothie a smooth richness.

Pea Sprouts – the young plants contain huge amounts of nutrients with disease-fighting properties. They have powerful sources of antioxidants, minerals, vitamins and enzymes that support and protect our body. Grab a big handful of them!

    • All three! 🙂 Often I have one for breakfast – but if I’m really hungry I’ll cook up some eggs and have that too. I’ll also often make a double batch to have a pick-me-up in the afternoon 🙂
