  • 3 ice cubes


Step 1

Chop non-leafy greens into cubes and de-stalk leafy greens if required (eg kale) then rinse.

Step 2

If using a high powered blender (eg VitaMix, Bullet or thermomix) place in all the ingredients and blended until smooth (approx. 1 min) add more liquid if required.

Step 3

If using a less powerful blender, add the water first and the non- leafy greens and blend briefly then add each ingredient one after the other slowly building up the smoothie until combined and smooth.

Step 4

Pour into two glasses or consume first serving and save second serving in a glass air tight container or thermos in the fridge for consumption the same day. Or freeze for consumption the next day.
