Easy green smoothie

Why should you make your own?

If you haven’t jumped on the green smoothie train yet, but you’re keen to try one, this easy green smoothie recipe is the one for you!

The two biggest reasons to make your own smoothies are:

1. It’s the easiest way to eat more green vegetables.

I don’t think I need to tell you that smoothies, especially green smoothies, are a great way to get some extra vegetables into your diet.

Most of us don’t eat enough veggies, especially greens. Mixing them into a delicious tasting smoothie, is always a big win.

2. It puts you in control of the ingredients

Smoothies that you buy can be very high in sugar, so that’s another great reason to make your own and be in control of the ingredients.

Try this easy green smoothie for a healthy breakfast or snack any time.

This really is the easiest ever green smoothie

This simple recipe is the first green smoothie I ever tried and I love it as a post exercise meal with a boiled egg or two and a handful of nuts.

This easy green smoothie only takes a few minutes to roughly chop the ingredients and then blend. It’s worth taking an extra minute to blend the spinach and water first, then add the fruit. You’ll get a lovely creamy consistency.

Try this easy green smoothie for a healthy breakfast or snack any time.

What you’ll need to make it:

  • a high speed blender
  • spinach
  • banana
  • mango
  • raspberries
  • water

Once you’ve got this green smoothie down pat, play around with different fruit combos and you’ll soon find some favourites.

I always recommend starting with spinach as your ‘green’ ingredient, as the flavour is so mild, all you taste is the fruit.
You can also use cucumber, celery, parsley, mint, lettuce, broccoli, kale and cauliflower is becoming popular, although it’s not actually green!
