Glowing Green Smoothie
This is the most powerful daily drink.
It supplies a good hit of cleansing fibre too.
1. 250ml of coconut water
2. 150ml of water kefir (or a little extra coconut water)
3. 2 medium kale leaves (de-stemmed)
4. 2 cos medium cos lettuce leaves (don’t use a different lettuce)
5. ½ stick of celery
6. 1 pear (de-seeded)
7. 1 banana
8. Juice of half a lemon (or more to taste)
· Place all ingredients into your Thermomix and blend at speed 9 for at least 1 minute – or until everything is smooth.
· You don’t want any chunks of fibre, as you need the cell walls of the kale etc.. broken down to receive the full benefits of them.
· Freeze into portions if you wish- defrosting in the fridge overnight.
Note: I encourage you to mix and match your greens and fruit. Vary this recipe with spinach, mint, coriander, and green apples. Just avoid melons, as they digest better on their own.
