As you may have seen in my recent posts I’ve become a big smoothie lover! Juicing has become part of my routine and find it the easiest way to get a good breakfast into my system with minimum effort and a good taste! If you want to know more about the juicer I use check out my review of my Breville Blend-Active here [LINK]. For today’s smoothie recipe I’ve got a health kick in a bottle. Admittedly it’s no match to my favourite berry breakfast smoothie but this gives you a good healthy boost of vitamins, iron and 4 of your 5 a day!
Other ingredients that can be added include ginger, lemon, celery. I don’t like these in drinks so avoid them but they are great for adding a kick to any drink.
This recipe makes around 400ml of juice, which for a green juice is what I prefer. Although green juice looks gross and isn’t the most delicious drink, I find by adding an apple and cucumber the green leafy vegetables are hidden and you mostly taste the apple. The benefits of drinking green juice include antioxidants, calcium, iron, manganese, vitamins A and C and a huge host of nutrients. If you need an extra boost then check out Nutri-system for men which enhances your weight loss and vitamin intake! Even if you have this juice twice a week, you know you’ll be boosting your vitamins and nutrients up which is perfect during the winter and germ season!
