I had intended to share a delicious creamy green spinach sauce that I often make to put on gnocchi, but I didn’t get around to making and photographing it. Instead, I opted for a fairly quick and easy green option so as not to miss out on today’s prompt – a simple smoothie. The combination of banana and kiwi fruit give a nice balance of sweet and sour, and it’s a nice liquidy one which is refreshing and easy to gulp down. So without further adieu…
Kiwi Banana Green Smoothie
3 kiwi fruit
2 cups spinach
6 large fresh mint leaves
1 tsp spirulina (optional)
1 Tbsp hemp seeds (optional)
1 1/2 cups water
Handful of ice
Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Enjoy!
that looks and sounds so good I am regretting not buying banana at shops today (they always go manky), esp as I need to use some of the mint in the yard!
Thanks Johanna! Yes, I had a patch a few weeks ago when my bananas kept going bad as I didn’t eat them, which is unusual in my household as we love them. Back on the banana wagon now though thankfully.
Thanks so much Chelsey!
Looks lovely! I like addition of mint, very refreshing.
Thanks Susan! It just gives it that little bit extra.
