From The Cafe: Ultimate Green Smoothie

Want to know how to make our epic green smoothie? It’s simpler than you might think…

I like to use orange juice and baobab in this because the greens and spirulina in this smoothie are high in iron, but it’s difficult for the body to absorb plant based sources of iron unless you consume it with vitamin C rich foods. Orange juice and baobab are great for that but also taste super yummy.

Ingredients (serves 1)

  • 1/2 cup of your favourite plant milk (This is so yummy with cashew milk)
  • 1/2 cup good quality orange juice, or 1 large orange juiced.
  • 1/2 banana
  • 1/2 apple
  • 1 small handful kale
  • 1 small handful spinach
  • 1 heaped tsp spirulina
  • 1 heaped tsp baobab

Wizz it all up in a high powered blender for 1 min, pour in to your favourite cup, and enjoy!

What do you like to put in your green smoothies? Let me know…
