Green Smoothie – with water
My green smoothie recipe is a great way to increase your daily intake of vegetables. Recently I have swapped the apple for frozen pineapple pieces and it made my green pop. I'm not sure why, I'm not a scientist, but it tastes great and looks cool.
I don't use any milk, or fancy coconut water just chilled water. Adding the banana makes this smoothie creamy and naturally sweet, so I don't add any extra sweetener but feel free to add maple syrup or honey if you want it, extra sweet.
I find drinking a smoothie is a great snack instead of reaching for cake or a biscuit.
If I want more protein I add beans. This might sound crazy however, it doesn't alter the taste at all, just added ore fibre and of course the protein.
