Miss G and I continue to start most of our days with a big green smoothie each, and I must say, we’re loving it. It’s become a morning routine for us… Grae retrieves the blender and fresh produce, I grab the freezer ingredients and chop things up, she puts everything into the blender, and together we enjoy our mason jars of green goodness.
I really shouldn’t even say this, but we’ve managed to make it through the season of sickness, with friends and playmates all around us dealing with endless bouts of flu and colds, without getting sick once (*knock on wood*). And I have to say, I think these vitamin/nutrient-packed immune boosters may just have had something to do with it.
Here’s our newest favourite…
Lime Refresher Green Smoothie
- 1 banana, fresh or frozen
- 1/2 an apple
- 1/2 a pear
- 1/2 cup of frozen mango
- 1 large lime, peeled
- 3 stalks of kale, stems removed
- 1 tablespoon of chia seeds
- 1 – 1.5 cups of cold water, depending on desired consistency
Blend on low until everything is combined, then blend on high for an additional 45 seconds. Serves two (plus a wee one if you’re willing to share a little).
