Healthy Green Smoothie Recipe

I have started to see Green Smoothies about lately. Mostly from looking on Instagram, Twitter and Youtube. Being a smoothie fan myself i really wanted to try this.
Smoothies are a fun way to keep healthy and are definitely great for the summer. There are so many ingredients you can chuck into a smoothie so there is always something for everyone :-)

I did a strawberry smoothie post on my blog earlier this year, check it out:

To make this smoothie i had screen shot a photo. I can't remember where i found it but i would guess it was from Twitter and it came up on my news feed at some point.



I got this already frozen pack of pineapple and mango mix from Tesco which was nice and quick. I only used half of the Avacado.
I used this small glass to measure things out


This makes enough for two glasses so i stored some in my shaker for later

Chilling in the garden with my Green Smoothie :-) Happy Days!

In my smoothie i chose to have 
  • Avacado (which i only used half) 
  • Kale 
  • Coconut milk
  • Water
  • Pineapple
  • Mango
  • Ice

I first put in the Kale and the Avacado. Then added on top the coconut milk and water. (1 glass of each)
I blended this together well until i could not see anymore bits.
I then added in the pineapple and mango mix which i did two glasses of and then blended again.
As it such a hot day today.. currently 28 degrees, whilst i am sitting in the garden writing this and it is 6pm!! That is crazy for England weather! I love it! :-) Anyway back to the point...because it SO hot i added in some ice cubes to blend up as well. This gave it a nice slushy consistency.

I was hesitant to try a green smoothie as you add in the leafy greens, i thought this would make it taste weird.
I was wrong! It tasted really good and i recommend people to try it. It is healthy for you too, giving you nutrients and good taste. As it such nice weather too, it is the perfect time to get on the smoothie making :-)

Let me know if you do try it, tweet to me your pictures if you do @carlyccxx

I uploaded a video on to my youtube making a smoothie which is like the one i made here just without the avacado. Check it out: Healthy Green Smoothie
