*within reason…..

RECIPE

Time: less than 5 minutes ~ Makes: 1/2 serves

Ingredients

  • 2 cups Kombucha (or coconut water/water)
  • 1 handful oganic baby spinach or any sad looking greens from the fridge (I freeze these also)
  • 1 raw organic zucchini, chopped & frozen
  • 1 raw organic cucumber, chopped & frozen
  • 1/2 cup frozen pineapple
  • 2cm knob organic ginger
  • juice 1 lime & zest
  • organic sprigs fresh mint
  • 1 heaped tbsp collagen (optional)
  • 2 heaped tbsp organic coconut yoghurt (optional)

Instructions

1. Combine all ingredients in a high-speed blender and blend until smooth.

NOTES
If ever my ginger or turmeric or lemons/limes are starting to look a little sad I just chuck them straight into my freezer and put them into smoothies or grate it into main meals.

Also whenever you add vegetables into the freezer as they have a high water content the water expands and partially breaks down the fibres allowing them to blend easier into a smoothie and become less stringy/chewy!
