Green Smoothie

16th December 2016 | Written by Louise Blanchfield

I love juicing for breakfast but if you don’t have a juicer then you can still enjoy a nutritious smoothie to start the day the healthy way! Either use a nutri bullet or a good blender to make these. There are loads of variations on this, you can add whatever you like really. I always add linseed (flaxseed) as it’s a great source of omega 3s so keeps you skin moisturised and I always add at least 1 green vegetable to get 1 of my daily quota in first thing in the morning. Always add frozen fruit of some kind or ice, a cooler smoothie tastes better.

Ingredients (for 2 people)

1 banana

1 handful kale or spinach

1 apple cored or 1 pear cored

1 pint coconut water

1/4 pint water

2 tbsp. linseed

1 handful frozen mango



  • Put it all in a blender and whizz it up
  • Pour in a glass and enjoy

Quick, easy and healthy breakfast with minimal effort…lovely! This is a great one before the gym as it’s not too heavy on the stomach. If you want to make it more filling to make it last till lunchtime add a spoonful of protein powder for each adult.

Please note : if you use kale in this you really need to use a good blender otherwise it’ll leave bits in the smoothie and it won’t be as nice.

You can enjoy this as part of The Food Physio Detox plan or weight loss programme. If you’d like to join, don’t delay, book now here.
