Green Me Up and Go Smoothie

March 17, 2017

It’s the perfect kickstart to your detox regime, an anecdote to a night out and a boost of nutrition. And yes, it’s also green.

But don’t worry, it does not taste like grass, or seaweed or a salad that’s been put in the blender. In fact, you can’t even taste the “green” in it. The flavours and sweetness of pineapple and banana with the tartness of lemon outweigh the flavour of the spinach and spirulina.

Ingredients of green smoothie laid out

It’s the perfect blend to hydrate and nourish you; here’s why:

  • Coconut Water – Provides a hydrating source of electrolytes
  • Lemon – Provides vitamin C and unique flavonoid compounds with antioxidant properties to prevent damage caused by free radicals
  • Banana – Provides potassium and fiber while lending a creamy texture to the smoothie
  • Spinach – A source of vitamin C, and phytonutrients including flavonoids and carotenoids with anti-inflammatory and antioxidant benefits
  • Ginger – Used in herbal medicine to reduce feelings of indigestion and nausea
  • Pineapple – A source of bromelain for anti-inflammatory benefits and digestive support
  • Cucumber – Rich in water, cucumber is great for hydration; cucumbers are also a good source of silica, and vitamin C
  • Spirulina – A source of antioxidants, containing iron and protein essential to red blood cell production and muscle repair within the body
  • Avocado – A good source of healthy fats and fiber while also enhancing the creamy texture of your smoothie
  • Collagen — A great source of protein, and amino acids to help sports recovery and gut health.

Ingredients:

 

Directions:

  1. Add all ingredients into a blender and blend on the highest setting until smooth.

Tip: If you’re using a high-speed blender use the core of the pineapple, it’s a bit tougher in texture, but it contains the highest concentrations of anti-inflammatory bromelain.
