One of my goals this year is to ‘eat more veg’ so today I thought I’d try out a new smoothie recipe. I’m going to have a green smoothie most days to ‘get my greens’.
I got a new book, written by Carrie Brown, the English chef who went over to America and hooked up with Jonathan Bailor and his Smarter Science of Slim. There are a lot of good recipes, to make veg great and make some good green smoothies.
It’s got a whole section on ‘green smoothies’ so here’s one of them (which turned out to be mainly brown)… which I added a few more veg into. It’s not specifically to the recipe in the book, but it’ll do.
Here’s the ingredients:
A few large handfuls of spinach
70g chocolate protein powder
A few handfuls of frozen berries
300mls boiling water
I whizzed it all up for a bit, then added some:
A stick of celery, sliced up
A bit more water
It’s enough for two portions, so one for today and one for tomorrow morning at work. 🙂
I had mixed berries / summer fruits, but I think I’ll just get frozen raspberries next time – less bits.
