Green smoothies are all the rage right now and for good reason. They are clean, green, simple and packed full of beneficial nutrients. If in doubt, commit to trying it daily for a week or two and see how it makes you feel - you may get to a point where you're actually craving it! Because on some level the body knows what's best for it.

There are thousands of recipes out there, each concocted according to personal preferences - you'll discover your own recipe once you start experimenting. Here's my standard recipe, it's fairly basic making it a good place to start from; the apple gives it a sweet component and the avocado a creamy one.

Ingredients (for one person)
half a stick of celery
one piece of kale, stalk removed (use leaves only)
one large piece of lettuce
half an apple, leave skin on but remove core/seeds
one third of a cucumber
one quarter of an avocado
handful of mint and parsley leaves
one cup of water (one and a half if you find you prefer a more liquid consistency - see photo at bottom of page)

That's it, simple right? Enjoy - your body will thank you!

Tips
If you're new to green smoothies you might want to start with my Green Smoothie for Beginners recipe.
If it simply isn't sweet enough use a whole apple, or add a fresh date or kiwi fruit.
Some of the ingredients are on the Environmental Working Group's Dirty Dozen list (produce most heavily sprayed with pesticides) and should be purchased organically grown where possible.

And if you enjoy a breakfast smoothie, try my Blueberry Bliss recipe, or Banana & Peanut Butter.
