Do yourself and your health a favour and get on board the green smoothie bandwagon. I've experimented with many different flavours and combinations over time, and settled on this one as my absolute favourite and go-to green smoothie. The banana and avocado give it a delicious creaminess that is lacking in many green smoothie recipes, and it is an absolute powerhouse of nutrients.

Ingredients
Kale - one piece, leaves only (discard stalk)
Celery - around an 8cm piece
One whole kiwi fruit cut into chunks
Half a banana
Quarter of an avocado
Couple of parsley sprigs
Few slices of cucumber
Quarter teaspoon of fresh ginger zest
Enough water to just cover the ingredients in the blender

Optional: I add two teaspoons of LSA and a sprinkling of green protein powder. And if you prefer it a little sweeter you can add half an apple or pear.

Method
Simply add all ingredients to your blender and blend until smooth and creamy.

Try to incorporate a green smoothie recipe into your diet to give your health and immunity a powerful boost. It may be the last thing you feel like in winter but I add the water half room temperature and half boiling for a warm smoothie - you just have to drink it fairly quickly while it's still warm - it's delicious and it will make you feel fantastic!

Tips
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.

If you find you can't manage a green smoothie each day but still want to boost your health, try an Antioxidant super smoothie or a Chia choc berry super smoothie.
