This Green Smoothie Recipe is Nutritionist-Approved

You know that green smoothies are good for you. They’re a quick and easy way for you to add a nutritional punch to your diet, whether you’re whipping up breakfast, refuelling post-gym, or getting a mid-afternoon pick-me-up.

Green, leafy vegetables are nutritional powerhouses. Packed with chlorophyll, they give you energy, improve oxygenation, and help your body get rid of toxins. They’re also a great source of protein and fibre, making them perfect for blood sugar control.

But are you getting enough of your greens each day? Possibly not. Which is why Mallucci’s in-house nutritionists recommend mixing up green smoothies at home. By blending your greens, you’re essentially pre-digesting them, maximising their nutritional benefits.

But be mindful that the base of smoothies should be either water or coconut water, or a natural juice that’s mixed with water. Fruit juice as a base will negatively impact blood sugar throughout the day, so add your fruits and greens to the right base.

Which brings us to our recommended recipe. Our nutritionists suggest blending one cup of filtered water with a generous handful (or more!) of fresh spinach until smooth. Then add ½ avocado, a banana, and a cup of frozen berries.

It’s that simple.

This vibrant concoction may not look very ‘green,’ but we guarantee it will taste amazing. As you get more comfortable with green smoothies, feel free to experiment with reducing the fruit content and adding more greens. Ideally, aim for a pint of this green goodness daily for maximum benefit.

Experimenting with green smoothies is easier than it sounds. All you need to do is make sure your kitchen is stocked with a range of nutritionist-approved fruits and vegetables. Here’s what we recommend…

Kale
Chard
Lamb’s Lettuce
