There is some smoothie under all that fruit I promise! However, I cannot promise that I won't make any more puns like the title for this blog post - I'm already nostalgic for studying English lit! I've pretty much fallen in love with smoothie bowls recently (something you will be fully aware of if you follow my instagram @steph_nourishmindandbody), and so it's good bye pint glasses, hello smoothies with lots of added fruit. This particular recipe was inspired by my need to get more salad greens into my diet; unfortunate because I detest them when solid and filling up my plate. BUT, all is not lost: concealed by the taste of banana and blackberry, I've managed to sneak some lettuce, cucumber and even celery into this smoothie without too many protestations from my tastebuds!
handful of blackberries
couple of cucumber slices
1 celery stick
handful iceberg lettuce
150ml milk alternative (I use rice milk)
2-3 handfuls spinach
large pinch flax seeds
1.) Peel and chop the apple and banana. Chop the celery, lettuce and cucumber.
2.) Place in a blender with the remainder of the ingredients. Whizz for three minutes and you're ready to go!
