Get up and green smoothie

This is a true green smoothie with only a little sweetness from the apple and honey. Lemon helps balance the green taste, too. If you find the flavour too tart, add a bit more honey

1.Blend until smooth and serve immediately.

A grunty blender should have no trouble whizzing up something solid like an apple, but if your blender isn’t up to the task try using a juicer instead, and just use the apple juice.

Green goddess smoothie

It’s tempting to just throw a bunch of fruit and veges in a blender and hope for the best, but that’s not what makes a good smoothie great. By using a recipe, you can ensure the correct balance of acidity and sweetness. Also, the consistency will be just right – not too thin, but not a thick sludge either. Most importantly, a great smoothie will be healthy – not simply a whole heap of sugar disguised as fruit. This green goddess smoothie is one of my trusty standbys. I regularly knock one back for breakfast or for a mid-afternoon snack. The pear provides the sweetness, the lime the acidity and the avocado makes for a smooth and creamy texture, plus it’s packed full of goodness. Enjoy!
