A very refreshing green smoothie for days where you fancy something a bit more than water. The sour lime, zingy kiwi, sweet banana and iron rich spinach make a very alkaline and balancing drink.
Use coconut water if you want something sweet or water if you want something low sugar and refreshing.
Yield: 1 large green smoothie
Refreshing Green Smoothie
Dark leafy greens are full of goodness so try to eat as many as you can every day. This smoothie uses a whole 250g bag of spinach but you can use kale or any other leafy green - just remove any tough stems.
It's tricky to eat a large number of greens and to quickly make them tasty, this is why I have a pint of green smoothie instead.
