HOW TO MAKE THE PERFECT SMOOTHIE COMBO – TRY THE GO GREEN RECIPE  | MUNCHWIZE DIETITIANS CAPE TOWN

Follow this formula to make a balanced, healthy and energy boosting smoothie:

STEP 1: ADD 50% leafy greens/light vegetables to the tall cup. Aim for two handfuls

STEP 2: ADD 1-2 servings of fruit. Example: 1 banana = 1 fruit serving

STEP 3: ADD 1-2 servings dairy/fat/carbohydrate. Example : 1 serving = 1 handful nuts/1 tbsp. flaxseed powder/ ½ cup plain yoghurt/ ¼ cup raw oats/oat bran. This will makes it more filling and nutritious

STEP  4: ADD ice/cold water (make sure your blender can take ice), we use a Nutribullet which is great for smoothies.

STEP 5: Blend and Serve

Try this green smoothie as a great example:

Ingredients:

  • 1 medium ripe banana
  • 1 cup of fresh, canned, or frozen pineapple
  • 3 large handfuls of fresh spinach (washed)
  • 1 cup of plain Greek yogurt
  • 6 oz. water
  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil (optional)
