Drink Your Greens Smoothie

Wow, it’s been nearly a month since my last blog post. I wasn’t intending to have a break over December, in fact I’d actually planned (in my head) that I would try to get some more recipes created and online. But, as we all know, the festive season is so BUSY! Good busy, but busy! Friends come back to their home town, catch-ups are in order, Christmas parties are happening left right and centre, and then there’s the downtime when you just want to eat your body weight in food, lie on the sofa watching re-runs of Home Alone, or have a marathon Pictionary session with your family. I hope you all had a wonderful Festive season!

I’ve totally enjoyed the time with friends and family over the last few weeks, why does it always go by so quickly? Now it’s January and it’s all over for another year. January brings a wave of resolutions. Most will no doubt be broken by then end of the month, some will keep to them well. I try to avoid making any, as I only end up breaking them and then feeling guilty. Life is not about feeling guilty. Life is about balance. And greens, lots of greens.

This smoothie is a great way to stick to your New Year’s healthy eating resolutions if you made any- or just a great boost of vitamins and nutrients. Packed full of goodness, ready in seconds, this will you keep you energised for the rest of the day. Think of it as a post-Christmas cleansing smoothie, to help you glow from the inside out.

There’s twice the vitamin C content in Tenderstem® than in the same fresh weight as oranges. It’s high in potassium and also Vitamin A, and is a great source of iron, vitamin B6 and calcium. What more could you want?

  1. An ideal smoothie to set you up for the New Year, nice and simple and not too many ingredients. So much goodness in those green tenderstems, can’t beat them.

  2. This looks amazing! Apart of me (my inner child) still sees anything green and doesn’t want it but the grown up part which is so much bigger really really wants this now 🙂 x

    1. Be bold, be brace Cathy! I think it would work with added spinach in too! If you’re wanting a slightly sweeter version, you could add banana?

  3. Happy new year, Sus! I’ve never had tender stem in a smoothie but I love all things green, especially if they’re smoothies. Can’t wait to whip this up in my blender! <3

    1. And to you Gen! I hope you had a fantastic trip!
      Tenderstem is my new fave smoothie addition, I’m really trying to make sure I get as many greens as possible at the minute. It’s been so wet in the UK and we’ve been ill and run down a bit too much recently. Greens to the rescue!

Thank You! I love hearing from you all.
