One smoothie or juice a day is a great way to up your intake of greens.

A power packed green Smoothie

Detailed below is an idea for a smoothie that has a great balance of greens and fruit.

Be sure to keep your smoothies and juices varied and always aim for more greens than fruit.

Serves 1:

A handful of kale

1 banana (if you do not like bananas use an avocado instead)

1/4 cucumber, roughly chopped

A handful of fruit, berries are good at this time of year

100ml of a plant based milk.


  • Place all the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.

Drink slowly and mindfully through a straw, it will aid digestion this way and protect your teeth.
