A Healthy Start to the Day? Try a Green Smoothie

Green Smoothie

I,  like a lot of people, am trying to shed a few lbs for the summer. I’m also always looking for ways to get more fruit and veg in my diet.  This green smoothie is a great start to the day. Quick to prepare, nutritious and delicious. What more can you ask for for breakfast!

As a busy working mum I never seem to have much time in the mornings.  We all know the importance of having a nutritious breakfast to set us up for the day, so this green smoothie is ideal. Quick to prepare, contains 2 of my 5 a day, and tastes good too!

Green Smoothie- A Healthy Start to the Day

You Will Need:

  • 300ml coconut water
  • 1 banana
  • 1tsp honey
  • Handful of baby spinach

How to do it:

This is a really really simple recipe, and literally takes a minute to prepare! I love my Breville Blend Active, and I think I’ve used it everyday since I got it over a year ago. It is also a really affordable blender, meaning smoothies for breakfast is a possibility for everyone.

  1. Pour the coconut water into one of the Blend Active flasks
  2. Break the banana into chunks and add to the flask along with the honey
  3. Fill the rest of the flask with Spinach and screw on the bladed cap
  4. Attach to the blender, and blend until smooth

And that’s it! It really is that simple. Enjoy!

I find this green smoothie gives me a boost and helps me tackle the busy day ahead. A good start to the day puts in me in a good frame of mind, and I am less likely to snack on rubbish if I’ve had a healthy start.Green Smoothie
