Green Smoothies

These have 2 main uses:

  1. Pre-prepare for easy way of getting green veg at lunchtime when at work
  2. A great snack to combat cravings as they contain just vegetables and in some cases fruit

I have provided 3 ideas here but you can use other vegetables.  Here are some guidelines:

  • You always need to have a “high water” constituent to make a liquid smoothie e.g. cucumber, courgette (zucchini), tomatoes, melon.
  • Add yogurt for a more full bodied smoothie and a supplemental protein intake.
  • Try out different ingredients, experiment and add whatever seasoning you like.  Keep it clean!

Use a liquidiser or liquidiser attachment to a food processor, or a Nutri Bullet or similar.  Different results with what you use but you should be able to make a smooth mixture with minimal lumps!
