Super Granny drinks this nutritiously packed green (yet yummy) smoothie to kick start her day, just about every morning...
And believe it or not, but these green smoothies are really delicious! Not convinced? Just check out the pic of Super Granny's grandchild enjoying her freshly made smoothie! A great 'hook' is to tell them it's what the Hulk drinks to get his super power strength!
This is also an excellent opportunity to teach your kids about the value of planting, harvesting and enjoying their own ingredients.
Yields: 1 cup
1 handful of fresh raw/frozen spinach
mint leaves to taste (Super Granny likes a lot)
1 over ripe banana (preferably out of the freezer)
1 cupcoconut or almond milk
1 handful of ice blocks
1 half ripe avocado
honey or dates (optional)
Gather the kids and harvest your fresh ingredients from the garden (or from the fridge)
Watch the joy on their little faces...
Blend everything together in your Nutribullet, and...
Don't worry if you can't add ice. But it does help if the banana is frozen (which gives it that yummy milkshake texture). Freezing bananas (without the skin) is also a great way to reduce wasting over ripe bananas (they can be used in a variety of smoothies, or even for baking).
There are no set rules. You can experiment by adding a variety of ingredients to your smoothie to suit your tastes.
