Mr Green’s green smoothie recipe!
It’s not often Mr Green takes to the kitchen in order to prepare food.
Although he can produce a fine Sunday lunch, his repertoire generally consists of toast and coffee.
However with the lovely weather we’ve had lately, Mr Green is feeling very spring like and has switched to his annual high raw diet.
Each year, when the temperatures warm up, he’s drawn to ditch his curry and beer in favour of more of the green stuff.
Usually he eats lots of salads, olives, avocados and a bit of fruit which is great but can get a little monotonous.
He’s been watching me use the Vitamix for the past few weeks and started scouring through the recipe book looking for a green smoothie. We all know we *should* drink them, but do they actually taste any good? We both had in mind something pretty unpalatable but with a recipe called “It’s Easy Being Green” he felt compelled to give it a go.
Here’s what’s in it:
It’s Easy Being Green Vitamix Smoothie Recipe
(we’ve halved the original recipe as I wasn’t brave enough to try it!)
1/2 cup (80 gms) green grapes
1/2 orange, peeled
1/4 cup (40gm) pineapple flesh
1/2 medium banana, peeled
1 cup fresh spinach
1/2 medium apple
approx 200 mls water (or use 3 cups ice)
It sounds like the sort of thing our bunny would love!
So can Mr Green extend his coffee and toast making to creating something more healthy? Take a look at the videos to find out …
