Newness has many colours. What merely looks like a bundle of earthy vitamins to you will be a fresh (re)start for me. My experiment with fresh fruit and vegetables is on. With the aim to stop before all that is mixed gets brown, I will stir cabbages up and shake bananas down. And add a slice of avocado to get the cream in my smoothie, that too. Lots to learn and more to enjoy. Energy will follow, I believe so. I heard about such great results among my friends, and will give it a shot. Green smoothies, here I come!
Look below for the Beginner’s Luck Smoothie recipe
The Beginner’s Luck Green Smoothie is a great beginner friendly green smoothie recipe. It’s full of iron, potassium and vitamins galore— AND tastes like a tropical treat from all the island fruit. Not a fan of bananas? Swap it for 1/4 avocado or add another 1/2 cup mango to the recipe.
- 1 cup spinach (fresh)
- 1 cup water
- 1/2 cup pineapple*
- 1/2 cup mango*
- 1 banana (peeled)
- Tightly pack spinach in a measuring cup.
- Add spinach to blender with water. Blend together until all chunks are gone. (Should resemble green water when blended well).
- Add pineapple, mango and banana to blender. I like to use frozen pineapple and mangos to chill the smoothie down and save time cutting and prepping. It’s a win-win!
- Blend all together until smooth and creamy. Depending on your blender, this could take as little as 30 seconds or as long as 2 minutes.
- Pour into a glass and serve immediately.
- You can also store the smoothie in the fridge with a lid until ready to drink.
