Green Goodness Power Smoothie


This full-of-goodness power smoothie can be eaten as a smoothie bowl with lots of happy-making toppings, but I prefer to pour it into a glass jar to drink on the go. These are my favourite greens to include, but of course you can mix it up according to what you have available.



Cooks in:        Serves:2

  • 2–3 cups water or coconut water
  • 2 cups baby spinach or roughly chopped kale
  • ½ avocado
  • ¼ medium-sized English cucumber
  • 1 courgette
  • 1 stick celery, roughly chopped
  • 1 apple or 1 kiwi, roughly chopped or 1/2 cup chopped pineapple,
  • squeeze of fresh lemon or lime juice
  • 1 thumb-sized piece of fresh ginger, skin on
  • 2 Tbsp ground almonds or 1 serving pea protein powder
  • 1 Tbsp chopped fresh basil or mint
  • 1 Tbsp spirulina or hemp seed powder (or moringa powder, or your favourite green powder)
  • 1 Tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 Tbsp baobab powder

What to do

Blend the smoothie ingredients together in a high-speed blender until smooth. Loosen with a little extra water if you find it too thick. Divide between glass jars. Refrigerate for up to one day.

Love Your Leftovers: Save the ends of your courgettes when spiralising by stashing them all in a freezer bag, and use them to add to your green smoothies as and when needed.
