Breakfast Smoothie

Green smoothie

I’ve been making this delicious green smoothie for a while now for breakfast.  This recipe makes 2 large serves & should keep you full until lunch time.  In the past, I’ve never found a smoothie enough to satisfy my hunger until lunch, but this one does!  Each serve contains 200 calories.  If you’d like a creamier consistency, add a whole avocado, which increases the calories to 300 per serve.  I’ve only been making it with half an avocado as they are quite expensive in Melbourne at the moment.  This smoothie will last in your fridge for a few days too.   Store in an air tight container in your fridge, so that you can give the smoothie a thorough shake before serving, as they juice may separate.

Ingredients:
1/2 avocado, peeled & stone removed
60g broccoli florets
20g kale leaves
20g baby spinach
1 stalk celery
1 apple, quartered
1 lemon, skin & pith removed
1 frozen banana, cut into thirds
5g mint leaves (a good handful)
1 tsp chia seeds
1 tsp stevia
60-100g ice cubes
600-700 g water

Method:
1) Place all ingredients in TM bowl, mix 1 minute/speed 9.

Notes:

Tweak this recipe to your liking, by adjusting the amount of water you add.  I usually add 650g, which I find ideal.
