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!

1.Blend all the ingredients for 30 seconds. Drink half in the morning and save the rest for an afternoon pick-me-up.

To get the full nutritional benefits from your smoothie, remember to “chew” it – this action stimulates the production of saliva, which contains crucial digestive enzymes to assist with nutrient absorption. When it comes to consistency, aim for a milkshake, not a thickshake.
