Essential green smoothie recipe for energy and clear skin

Green smoothies are the easiest way to sneak nutrients into our diet in a very pleasurable way. What might seem like a small habit is extremely beneficial for your entire body, particularly for disease prevention and overall energy levels. The fibre and nutrients in this powerful glass of goodness act to keep you feeling full and reduce cravings for other foods. This, along with the
weight management benefits from eating avocados, is a fantastic kick-start to weight-loss. Additionally, after even a week of eating these skin friendly nutrients every day, most people notice an improvement in the overall condition of their skin.

  • 2 cups spinach
  • 1 apple cored
  • 1/2 avocado
  • 2 cups coconut water


  1. Add the ingredients into your blender (it’s nice to put the spinach on the bottom, so it blends more easily).
  2. Blend for about 30 seconds until well mixed
  3. Drink
  4. Repeat this each AM after your
warm lemon water habit. I usually have my lemon water when I first get up, and make my smoothie after showering. Having this gorgeous smoothie in your tummy each day is such an easy thing to do in exchange for transformational health results.

Recipe Notes

To prepare for the week ahead all you need to do is buy 4 avocados, 7 apples, 14 cups of spinach and 4 litres of coconut water.
