I don’t know about the rest of the world, but here in Scotland, its still cold and wet. April is said to be the rainiest month, and my garden is living proof. I’ve not seen the sky for 10 days straight, just a drab grey cloud cover. In which case, now’s a good time to devour some extra vitamins – the green way!
A super green spinach smoothie to boost your immune system, and get you lean and mean for spring time!
Helping the spinach become more palatable, is sweet pear and tangy kiwi, delicious yoghurt and fragrant vanilla. Once blended, its best to drink the smoothie immediately.
1 large handful of spinach (50g)
150ml pear juice
2 tbsp natural yogurt
¼ vanilla pod, scraped
a dash of lemon juice
Chop the banana and kiwi into chunks and pop them in the freezer for 30min. (they do the job of ice cubes)
Place the spinach and pear juice into the blender, and blitz until smooth. Add the frozen fruit, and blend again. Now add the yoghurt and vanilla seeds, and whizz again for a few seconds.
