Tropical Green Goddess Smoothie

It seems the day after a bank holiday it’s a little hard to get back into the swing o’ things. Usually these long weekends are packed with too much good food and lots of drink, notorious for leaving us feeling a little heavy and drained. Here’s a refreshing way to recharge the batteries, get some good nutrients back into the body and beat the heat without costing much. It might sound like a strange combo but it’s surprisingly delicious. Thanks to my good friend and celebrity trainer, Valerie Waters for sharing her recipe with us!

RECIPE:
Serves 2

2 big handfuls of fresh raw spinach
1 cup frozen mango chunks
1 banana
1 cup of water

DIRECTIONS:
Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.

Since we’re using frozen mango there’s no need for ice but of course you can use fresh mango if you’d like, just add in a little ice to get the smoothie consistency. I’ve made this with mixed berries, which also tastes great and I like adding in protein powder especially for my vegetarian Missus, which makes a great after-workout snack. Who knew spinach would be such a great base for a smoothie?!

All recipes are made with the finest quality farmers market whole foods, natural and non-processed ingredients.

It seems you’ve unwittingly joined the Green Monster Movement (not my idea, but I’m one of its fans). I like to freeze everything in the smoothie, including the spinach and the banana–it makes for one chilly treat.
