Green Smoothie 2

My breakfast shots ~ Green Smoothie

Blended in my new Spectablend which took about 30 seconds to produce a smooth and creamy smoothie.  It is so easy to make a healthy smoothie, all you need is a good blender, fruits, green vegetables and a base such as yogurt, juice or water.  Just remember to always put in your juicy fruits first, followed by dense fruits and lastly leaves. 


1 banana
1 Packham pear, cored and cut into quarters (leave skin on)
1 cup (tightly packed) baby spinach leaves
1 stalk celery
1 cup low fat Greek yogurt

  • Start by pouring yogurt into your blender.
  • Then I add in banana, celery, pear and lastly spinach leaves.
  • Blend until smoothie is creamy.  However, do not blend for over 60 seconds in order not to overheat or oxidise the fruits/vegetables.  Over blending will results in loss of nutrients.
