Get in the festive mood this St Patrick’s Day with this Green Smoothie Recipe!
Green smoothies are a great way to start your day. Greens contain antioxidants, which help neutralise free radicals molecules responsible for ageing! They are also packed full of calcium, magnesium, iron, potassium, phosphorous, zinc and vitamins A, C, E and K.
You can find these ingredients in your local branch of The Health Store.
1. Start with your liquid base. Coconut water is a good base as it contains natural electrolytes to help hydrate. You can also use milk, or your choice of dairy-free milk. I use about a glass but you can adjust to get your desired consistency.
2. Add your greens. I use spinach or kale. I then add a spoonful of green powder such as Viridian Synergy Greens Powder
to boost the nutrient content.
3. A little fruit adds sweetness, fibre and additional nutrients. An apple or a handful of frozen berries works well.
Blend it all together. You may prefer to blend rather than juice vegetables and fruit as it preserves the fibre, which supports digestion. A super-healthy, anti-ageing, immune boosting start to your day.
Wishing you a happy & healthy St Patrick’s day from all at the Health Store
