Mean Lean Smoothie

So… green smoothies. You either love ‘em or you hate ‘em!

But a weight loss blog wouldn’t be complete without at least one green smoothie recipe, right?

So here is one of my faves.

The great thing about green smoothies is that they are such an easy way of boosting your daily intake of fruit and veg, without having to munch on salads all day long. They pack a nutritional punch, and once you surrender to the idea of making them part of your routine… you might even realise that they aren’t that bad after all!

So give this one a try and let me know how you go. I dare you :)

This recipe is gluten free, dairy free, vegetarian and quick to make.
