We like to match this nutrient-dense, vibrant smoothie with our new season Allpress EVOOs. Waiheke Island extra virgin olive oils are especially fresh and herbaceous, complementing the sweet-green elements perfectly. Enjoy!
Cucumber, ⅓ Telegraph or 1-2 Lebanese Cucumbers
Celery, 1 big rib washed and chopped
70g Spinach (or any leafy greens) approx 2 big handfuls
Ice cubes, a handful
200ml Coconut water
1-2 T Allpress EVOO
1 Green Apple, cored and cut into chunks
1 Lemon, peeled and segmented (no pits) or squeezed
4 Medjool Dates, torn in half, stem and pit removed
1 Banana (peeled chunked)
1cm Ginger, peeled
1cm Turmeric, peeled
2t Chia Seeds
Place all ingredients in a high speed blender and blend for 2 mins. Serve immediately.
Green smoothies are especially adaptable. Play around with these ingredients and use what you have. Any hardy leafy green will work well here, such as Silverbeet or Kale.
