Superfood Green Smoothie

IMG_2440 (2)There are so many fantastic variations and additions that can be whizzed up in a green smoothie. I almost don’t know where to start but the following is my current favorite recipe. It’s a wonderful breakfast to get you off on the right foot, or  a perfect  mid morning boost but most of all I love it as a little bit of green bliss after a yoga class. Smoothies are rather like cold soups in a way, there’s lots of wiggle room to add your favorite flavors and leave out those you’re not so keen on. Just experiment and find your favorite.

Not difficult! Place everything in a blender and blitz. Sometimes the simple things are indeed the best.
