Green Smoothie with Lime and Ginger – My Favourite

17 February, 2013

I was first introduced to the idea of Green Smoothies almost 3 years ago when a work collegue who is a wonderful source of information for all things healthy suggested I try one. I was pregnant at the time and was worried about the side effects…crazy huh?
Yes I was a kid of the processed food age clearly. The thought of throwing a bunch of kale or spinich into a blender with a couple of other fruits and vege absolutely freaked me out.My worries certainly fell by the wayside once Lil D arrived and I was quickly becoming under nourished myself with his reflux bearing down very hard on me.

Since those early days I have experimented with many combinations but this one is by far my favourite.

Green Smoothie with Lime & Ginger

Large handful of spinach
1 x carrot
1 x green apple
1 cup of green grapes
1/2 banana
1/2 lime (peeled)
2cm knob of fresh ginger
500ml water
2 teaspoons of chia seeds

Whiz all ingredients together until smooth in blender, juicer or Thermomix.

Serve with ice if desired.

    This sounds great. Will have to try it out. I usually just put in different fruits into my thermomix and whizz something up. My favourite is watermelon, pear and strawberry.

      Hey Sarah … I should give your recipe a try. I haven’t ventured into using watermelon yet. But definitely try throwing in some ginger. Totally recommend!
