My Favourite Green Smoothie Recipe

My favourite green smoothie recipe, full of nutrition for a energy boost!

Green smoothies are so popular now and they deserve the hype! Green smoothies are the ultimate healthy recipe, they pack so many nourishing ingredients and can be changed to your taste! Plus they make your skin glow and are amazing for the immune system.

I’ve always struggled to get into the habit of having them regularly. They don’t fill me up enough for breakfast and working 9-5 makes it difficult to find time during the day. I started making one after dinner and I’m loving it! Now I really look forward to it and miss it when I don’t have one.


Now you may be scared that this Green Smoothie won’t taste too pleasant but the banana, apple and the carrot keep it sweet and creamy.
