Green Smoothies

I’ve been introduced to the world of green smoothies. I’ve learned two things.
1/. Use fruit (I try to use lower fructose ones, or Cohen’s Lifestyle first choice ones)
2/. Mint makes the world go round! I like to use a large handful.

1 green apple
1 celery stalk
1/4 cucumber
2 handfuls spinach leaves
1 large handful of mint
1/4 cup yoghurt
1/4 lemon (rind and all)

1/4 avocado

2 cups of water -add one, then what you need of the other

Optional (I use all of these)
1-2 tablespoons of
Chia seeds
Coconut, desiccated, shredded, flaked etc
LSA mix
Small handful of oats
Blend til smooth

If you using frozen veg, you may need more water, less if everything is fresh. Use less oats if you like thinner smoothies. This one is the consistency of a thick shake. Makes 4 large glasses.
