When I was little, my dad used to have an machine in his car that my brother and I used to call the lean mean green machine. Admittedly we were six and eight when we came up with the name. Twenty years on, I think that it is a much better name for this vibrant smoothie.
Blitzed together in seconds, this smoothie is perfect for a morning when you are on the go.
- A good handful of spinach
- 1/2 a lemon (skin removed)
- one kiwifruit
- 1/2 a green apple
- stalk of celery
- 1/4 turmeric root
- 3/4 cup of coconut water (or normal water)
You can also add a dash of apple cider vinegar if you really want to awaken the senses. Or you can top with chia seeds for added protein.
Blitz together in a blender for 30 seconds. Pour into a jar. Pick up handbag and keys with one hand and smoothies jar with other and head out the door.
