yesterday was fright night! And a day for injecting my body with a little TLC. As I crawled, zombified, from my bed, I decided that it was time for a little green monster smoothie to nourish my insides and get me back on the road to healthy eating pre-Christmas binge. Recently, kiwi and I have been best friends: sliced atop Greek yoghurt, scooped from it’s hairy coat with a spoon and whizzed to a pulp in my most recent potion: a simple breakfast smoothie that’ll get some goodness in you.
I included a tablespoon of spirulina to add a burst of protein, much to my sister’s disgust when she found out it was a blue-green form of pond algae. No complaints though. This went down without a grimace whatsoever. And luckily we didn’t turn into pumpkins!
1 large handful of spinach
1 tbsp spirulina powder
1. Juice the pears and apples, then add to a blender with the spinach, spirulina powder and the kiwi flesh, scooped from its skin.
2. Blend again for a minute or so until smooth and completely combined, then chill before enjoying.
