Happy New Years Everyone! Just in case you indulged a little too much over the festive season, here's a green smoothie recipe for you.
Not only do green smoothies give you energy throughout the day, it can also help you to detox and cleanse your system. With many health benefits, you will be amazed at how fast your skin gets cleared up. The past few weeks, I have been having green smoothies for breakfast, and it definitely helps to keep me full till lunch time. My skin also started clearing and I have lesser active breakouts.
I am sure you have come across plenty of infographics on Tumblr or Pinterest, that shows you the steps and ingredients needed to create a certain smoothie recipe. Follow them and you will never go wrong :) I like mixing up the ingredients for my recipes and creating different flavours. That's the best part about smoothies - you can throw in tons of ingredients and it'll still taste great ;)
Just so you know, avocados and bananas make a pretty good combination! I love the flavour of the two combined :) And without a doubt, my green smoothie recipe includes both of these fruits! Now, if you are not a fan of vegetables, don't worry, you wouldn't taste a hint of it! I got my friends hooked on green smoothies now ;)
If you do not have any access to baby spinach (weirdly enough, the supermarket doesn't seem to have any now), try switching it up with kale or romaine lettuce! Not a fan of coconut water? Use milk or plant based milk if you're vegan. I prefer using coconut water as it's more refreshing - perfect for a post workout drink/meal! If you want to add more flavour to your smoothie, add cinnamon :)
You see, there are just endless ways to create your very own green smoothie but this is my favourite. Let me know if you were to try it!
