Don’t be scared of the green-ness- the fruit and the mint make it quite delicious!

Recipe: Zesty & Refreshing Green Smoothie


  • a handful of green leafy veggies: such as baby spinach, spinach, kale, swiss chard etc
  • 1/4 frozen orange (the peel and pith to be kept on)*
  • 1 kiwi fruit- skin peeled off (though you can keep skin on for extra fibre)
  • 1/8 of a lime (the peel and pith to be kept on)*
  • a few mint leaves
  • ~about a cup of water (adjust to desired consistency)
  • optional extras: flax seeds; lecithin granules (non-gm);

How to:

  • Add all the ingredients and blend till smooth. Adjust water (you may need more or less) to get your desired smoothie consistency.

*As you are using the skin, these ingredients are best if organic.
