So the other day I made a delicious and really filling green smoothie so thought I just had to share. Now don’t get me wrong I’m usually suitably wary of anything too green and ‘healthy’ – not always convinced they taste as good as people make out, but boy was I wrong! This is definitely one of the nicest smoothies I have made and is really good for you too. I also found it was really filling much to my surprise – again I’ve always been wary of people suggesting a drink can be a meal but this really did keep me going.
After seeing the benefits of spinach smoothies extolled in a number of places I decided to give it a try and in case you couldn’t tell already I can’t recommend it enough. This is also a good way to use up any spinach that is slightly past its best, which has begun to look a little wilted and sad – ditto with bananas.
Ingredients (Makes 2 large glasses)
70g Fresh Spinach
120g Strawberries hulled and quartered
200ml Lacto-Free milk
1 Large Banana
1 Tablespoon of Golden Syrup – I have a sneaking feeling that in the summer, when the strawberries are more flavourful and sweet this won’t be necessary
- As with most smoothies simply put it all in an immersion/hand blender or food processor and whizz until everything has broken down.
