I have to admit I don’t usually go for green when it comes to smoothies because green smoothies always seem to be a bit of a gamble. With fruit, I’ve found you can throw in pretty much anything and the combination will work. When you start experimenting with spinach, kale & co., however, things can quickly get nasty if you don’t get the right balance.
But I haven’t given up on the green smoothie. It’s a learning process – as pretty much everything featured on this blog – and with a little bit of experimenting I found the first green smoothie that works for me. BECAUSE IT ACTUALLY TASTES NICE! I think it’s all down to the tropical goodness of mango and pineapple…
TROPICAL GREEN SMOOTHIE
2 handfuls fresh spinach
200-250ml light coconut milk (I use Koko dairy free)
- Throw everything into a blender (I use a Thermomix) and blitz until smooth.
- Bliss out on green goodness.
