Green Smoothie: Spinach, Banana and Kiwi fruit.

Having been brought a lovely large bag of spinach by my grandmother and being inspired by some of the smoothie recipes I’ve been looking at recently…I decided to give it a go. Now I’ve made smoothies in the past but they’ve always been fruit ones. I’d never tried the vegetables option…until now.

Smoothies can be great for helping you get more fruit and vegetables in your diet and also good to help introduce different fruits and veggies into your day.  The one I made is a good source of iron, folate, zinc, magnesium and potassium.

I don’t have a proper smoothie maker, and to be honest I’m not a fan of having multiple kitchen gadgets that clutter up the worktops (my hubby may beg to differ on that), so I just have a food processor, and it did a great job.

So first thing in the morning I felt inspired, here’s the recipe I tried out:

Recipe:

1 large handful of baby spinach

1 medium banana

1 kiwi fruit

Blend up with a splash of water. Here’s how mine looked….I know it looks very green but it was surprisingly tasty. Be inspired, get creative and let me know how your smoothies turn out!

    Hi
    I added almonds and orange juice to mine, it made it smoother. Yum!
