This is it folks. A momentous occasion. I think I’ve finally found the winning combination to green smoothie goodness. Write this recipe down and whack it on your fridge! I’ve tried so many different combinations that I would call myself a somewhat expert in the field.  This blend has just the right amount of sweetness, is pleasantly thick without getting stuck in your straw and still packs a big nutritional hit from some favourite superfoods kale, almonds and coconut.

Including a big handful of green leafy vegetables in your breakfast routine has so many health benefits I don’t know where to begin. My favourite however would be the good dose of Magnesium present in vegetables such as kale, swiss chard and spinach. Magnesium is SUCH an important mineral in the body, it’s responsible for over 300 biochemical reactions and is essential for normal muscle and nerve function, a healthy immune system, and strong bones. It also helps in the regulation of hormones.

If you’re a green smoothie skeptic, I guarantee this brew will have you singing the praises of kale in no time! Here we go….

Ingredients:

  • 1 small banana
  • Big handful of fresh kale
  • Coconut water from one fresh young coconut
  • 1/2 cup rice milk
  • Small handful of raw almonds
  • 2 tablespoons of oats or chia seeds
  • 1 teaspoon supergreens powder (I use Detox Inner Beauty Powder from the Beauty Chef)
  • 1/2 cup ice cubes

Sprinkle on top your choice of:

  • Raw cacao nibs
  • Chia seeds
  • Goji berries
  • Blueberries

Blend away to your hearts content. Check some other smoothie recipes that might tickle your fancy.

    • Hey Hil! It’s so good and healthy – definitely try it out. I add the oats to thicken up the smoothie and keep me full until lunch. As for some gluten free options I’d go for some chia seeds (maybe 1/4 cup), or some caramalised buckwheat kernals (the Loving Earth brand). You can add these in before of after you blend. Enjoy lovely lady! x
