Vegetable packed green smoothie blend
Green smoothie with ALL THE VEGGIES… which i am being asked a lot about so answering q’s here: I use frozen vegetables in almost every smoothie I make and you seriously can’t taste it, my kids have no idea but kids or not it’s a really easy way to get an extra serve of vegetables into your day because the MAJORITY don’t hit anywhere near the basic target for vegetables daily – you should jump over and see the stats here – it will amaze you!
Spinach is the obvious which you can use fresh baby spin or frozen cubes for convenience and chill.
When I buy raw cauliflower and raw Zucchini I cut some and freeze it ready.
I don’t cook any of these veggies before they go in, just raw and easy.
Beetroot is another favourite best suited to berry smoothie flavours and broccoli sprouts are amazing but sadly pregnancy means avoiding sprouts. 😔
I generally use water for my smoothies because by the time I add the rest of the ingredients it’s creamy and “milky” enough, if I choose to use a milk it’s soy, almond or dairy.
