Green smoothies are a good source of vitamins and minerals. They can really perk you up when energy is flagging, or when you want to start the day with a bit of a boost.
There are lots of quick recipes, and this is a tasty one to try that takes about 10 minutes to prepare:–
Ingredients for 2:
1 ripe avocado
80g of baby spinach
80g seedless grapes (green preferably)
1 tsp chia seeds (flax or sesame seeds are good alternatives)
How to make it:
Put the avocado, banana, grapes and spinach in a blender. Add 400ml of water and blend until smooth and thick. Add the chia, or alternative seeds and blend again. Serve straight away.
Over ripe bananas can be peeled, sliced and frozen so you don’t have to throw them away. When you want them don’t defrost, just use them straight from the freezer!
