Hands up who has spent a small fortune on ingredients, fired up the blender on a Monday morning, eagerly poured the fruits of your labour into a glass & admired your Green baby with an air of smugness (“yes, I’ve done it, it’s Monday, I’m on a health buzz & although I’ve spent a small fortune, by Tuesday I’ll look like I’ve been drinking from the fountain of youth for years”)? You then drink it and it tastes nothing but mildly offensive…..like moldy, fermented vegetables? Well both my hands are up! I’ve been there, done it, got the t-shirt on more occasions than I care to mention.
Perfecting your Green smoothie is actually something that takes time and has to be in tune with your own tastes & nutritional needs. It’s personal to you. I found that by keeping the fruit content low (to keep things low sugar) & sticking to this basic recipe I actually create a better smoothie for adding whichever array of superfood powders I wish. Therefore, I never really have to change too much and I can confidently hit the Spirulina big time without my smoothie tasting like Kale Mush (no one needs to experience that). The lower the fruit content the better, however, if you are new to the almighty ‘Green Stuff’ then allow your taste buds to transition. I assure you, within no time you will be aiming for as little B A N A N A as possible.
