I make the kids and I fruit juice in my thermomix nearly every second day, we love it, so refreshing, tasty and really healthy. I have been wanting to try a green smoothie for a while now but have been worried that I wouldn’t enjoy it. We had family stay with us over Christmas and she made us her version of a green smoothie, and I was pleasantly surprised and happy to jump on the Green Smoothie bandwagon. Having a green smoothie will easily help ensure I get enough daily servings of fruit and vege, it helps the digestive system, high in antioxidants and is a great energy boost when needed at the end of the day (we usually have a juice/smoothie around 4pm). Making the juice in the thermomix is very different to a juicing machine, as you add the whole fruit to the bowl (peeled), keeping all the fibre and pulp, I prefer my juices thick.
The kids didn’t fancy it, but as I always said when they were younger, we have to persist when it comes to eating veggies. So I made a different version, it’s not a ‘proper’ green smoothie, but it’s a start and each time I make it I will gradually add in more green veggies but for now they LOVED this one!
I made this smoothie in the Thermomix, but you can make it in your blender. Blend on highest speed until all ingredients are chopped and smooth.Print
