A quick and easy sweet greeeeen smoothie

Today I am drinking green smoothies!  Specifically, a green smoothie made with bananas, raspberries, apple and baby spinach.  All organic of course :)

I thought that given the glorious warmer weather we are being blessed with at the moment, that some of you might like to try this cold smoothie too.

Often when people first hear of green smoothies they think wow that sounds really strange, who would put greens in their smoothies?  I always tell them that....   Greens are the BEST ever!

I ♥  greens because they make me healthy.  

Green smoothies are actually totally amazing for your health.  A green smoothie everyday can make a huge difference to how you feel.  There is so much goodness in fresh raw organic greens and this is a really pleasant way to consume them.  Not everyone likes to eat salad everyday!

So here is the recipe for the geen smoothie I am drinking right now....

4 ripe bananas
1/2 punnet raspberries 
1 apple
three generous handfuls of baby spinach leaves
1-2 cups of water

Throw it all in the blender and once smooth, check the consistency. If it's a little too think for you just add a little more water.  It might be green but because spinach has such a neutral flavour you really can't taste it.

Sometimes I freeze some fresh raspberries for use in smoothies, as having the smoothies with that coldness adds something 'extra'.  Especially in summer.  You could try adding a few ice cubes before blending though.


Wishing you all an amzing time in this beautiful weather we're having over the Easter break :)  xx
