True Green Smoothie

Avocado DelightI strive to eat the recommended 5-10 fruits and veggies each day. I have no problem when it comes to fruit; banana in smoothies, apple with breakfast and snack, afternoon orange, etc. Veg can be a problem though. If I don’t eat salad everyday sometimes it’s tough to get more than two servings. My jaw can only handle so much chewing!

So what to do? Why pack it into a smoothie of course! Here’s one that fits a fair chunk of your daily dosage into one (or two) cups. Looks strange but taste delicious (think salad, not milkshake, delicious).

Green Smoothie

  • Romaine lettuce bunch
  • Chopped cucumber
  • Coconut water or some form of milk
  • Juice of 1lime
  • Handful cashews (soaked overnight is best)
  • 1 avocado

Play around with quantities until flavour is right. Blend until smooth. Drink until satisfied.
