Green Smoothie Recipe for Beginners
Editor in Chief of
For those of you new to green smoothies, you'll find this version somewhat smoother and sweeter than my previous
Super Green Smoothie
recipe, more of a beginner's style! But still packed full of beneficial nutrients.
- 1 piece, washed and stems discarded
Lettuce - 1 large piece or a couple of smaller ones
Cucumber - about 6cm worth
Apple - half, remove seeds and core, leave skin
Parsley - 1 sprig
Coconut milk - 1/4 of a cup
Water - 1 and 1/2 cups
Throw everything in the blender and mix until smooth. Drink immediately.
Some of the ingredients are on the
Environmental Working Group's Dirty Dozen list
- these are best purchased organically grown.
If it still isn't sweet enough for you, use a whole apple or add one date (soften in hot water first).
Coconut milk can stored in a jar in the fridge once opened for up to a week or more.
If you find it too fibrous still, peel the apple.
If you enjoy a breakfast smoothie, try my
