Nutrient-rich and full of vitamins and antioxidants, this is one green smoothie which will keep you going for hours on end.
It has plenty of greens such as celery, spinach and kale, but it also has a few little extras, such as raw nut butter, which is full of protein and goji berries which are another wonderful superfood. I’ve included Chia seeds, which are super high in antioxidants and act as a natural thickener too. I added lemon juice which aids digestion and I’ve included a generous amount of cinnamon which has numerous benefits such as assisting with blood sugar control, cancer prevention, weight reduction, arthritis, IBS and even PMS, ladies! I’ve also included a banana and half a pear, both provide a lovely sweetness and not mention, go perfectly with cinnamon too.
No juicing machines required, just put it all in your blender, whiz, and it’s ready to go!
