The benefits of smoothies –

Wild About Greens by Nava Atlas -Thank you, Nicole

“The fibre in a green smoothie acts like a chimney sweeper.  Since smoothies still contain fibre from the fruits and vegetables, they have a cleansing effect on the bowel.

Sugar is absorbed slowly because of the built-in fibre.  Green smoothies allow you to enjoy the benefits of fruit without experiencing sugar spiking and the ensuing crash.  The fibre regulates the flow of sugar into the bloodstream as your body digests.”

Serves four medium glasses

It is very important to use only organic produce when making juices or smoothies.  They are both concentrated sources of produce, and you don’t want to add pesticides to the mix. 

ingredients :

2  frozen bananas

2 cups fresh blueberries (or a mix of berries – strawberries, raspberries etc)

1½ cups homemade nut milk

1 cup filtered water

a generous handful of greens (chard, kale or spinach)

2 – 4 Medjool dates, pitted (depending on your preferred sweetness)

1 Tblsp pureed dried coconut flesh (I use a brand called ‘Coconut Manna’, which I purchased in London, but you could replace it with freshly grated coconut or coconut oil)

preparation :

Combine all the ingredients in a high-speed blender.  Process until smoothly pureed.  Divide between four medium glasses and serve at once.
