Green Smoothie

Green Smoothie

Ingredients

1 1/2 - 2 cups fruit, I like frozen mango and pineapple

1 banana

2 silverbeet leaves and 2 cos lettuce leaves

A handful of almonds

1 cup water

1 tsp spirulina (incredibly high in iron, great for babies and their crazy high iron requirements)

Directions

Throw everything in your blend and blend on high for 1 minute.

TASTE TEST. If adding greens is new for you or you have a sweeter tooth, you may need to adjust the flavours by adding more fruit.

Serve in jars to drink or in bowls to scoop with some coconut yoghurt. I pop BJ in his learning tower, he helps me make it, sees everything that goes in (usually stealing silverbeet along the way). I serve his in a bowl with a spoon, the bib gets a lot of it but it becomes a fun game for him scooping the smoothie out of his bib too.

Serve as is or with a coconut yoghurt scoop. Everyday this one gets better, so be happy with leftovers.

One of the great joys each week is opening up my Free Co. box and discovering what they have sent me. I can then plan my meals around the veg and challenge myself with new recipes and ideas. I'm also supporting a truly sustainable business.
