Simple is one of our non-negotiables. You’re welcome. 🙂
Green Goddess Nectar Smoothie
Green Smoothie Ingredients:
- 1 cup coconut water
- 1 cup spinach or kale
- 1/2-1 banana/1/2-1 cup strawberries or 1/2-1 cup grapes or a mixture (frozen is great!)
- Ice cubes
- 1-2 scoops of your favourite protein powder if you want something filling.
- A few mint leaves
- A touch of cucumber
- Pop it all into a blender.
We told you. Easy peasy.
100% natural coconut water is a good source of electrolytes such as potassium, magnesium, phosphorus and calcium while providing a tasty, slightly sweet flavour to your green smoothie.
We love smoothies as a convenient and easy way to add more green vegetables (and all their goodies!) to the diet. Spinach and kale are both considered superfoods – packed with vitamins A, K phosphorus, calcium and magnesium – these essential nutrients all provide awesome benefits for the health of your skin, bones, hair, and cells!
