What’s in my green smoothie?

I love green smoothies as a snack to keep me going and as a way to feel like I’m getting extra goodness from veggies and greens in my diet.


I am always carrying around jars of smoothie with me and lots of you have asked what’s in them! Here’s a really easy recipe that I use a lot when I make green smoothies. Give it a try – you don’t need an expensive blender for this, any one you have will do.


2 handfuls of spinach

½ cucumber (chopped)

½ avocado

1.5 cups liquid (water, coconut water, coconut or almond milk)

½ cup frozen berries


1 tbsp chia seeds

1 tsp supergreens

1 tsp honey


Blend everything, starting with the spinach and liquid, until you have a creamy smoothie.


The Rules when making smoothies:

  • Try keep it 3 parts veg to 1 part fruit
  • Berries are low GI and so make a good choice of fruit
  • Bananas or Avocado will make a smoothie creamy.
  • Coconut water, Water, or an unsweetened almond or coconut milk make an excellent choice when it comes to choosing a liquid to blend the smoothie.


Some extras you can add:

  • Supergreens – spirulina, chlorella etc
  • Chia Seeds
  • Flaxseeds
  • Protein Powder
  • Peanut Butter / Cashew Butter
  • Matcha Powder


Other Tips:

  • Frozen bananas work really well in smoothies and are great to have on hand.
  • If your supergreens taste too fishy, try adding some lemon or lime juice to take away the strong flavour. Honey works well too.
