KB's Ultimate Power Green Juicy Breakfast Smoothie!

Hello! Hope everyone is feeling good and happy. I'm going to share with you my go-to breakfast of the moment. I've been experimenting with various different green juices and smoothies for a while now. I've made all kinds of concoctions with a wildly varying range of ingredients, but have ended up having this one just about every morning for the last few weeks. It's delicious, bursting with nutritional goodness and it really sets you up for the day. 

Although, the main component of this is freshly squeezed fruit and veg juice, this is a smoothie, not a juice, so won't work for you if you're on a juice cleanse. As soon as you blend it up with the other ingredients you're adding fibre back in, which is all good, but not if you're juicing. Perfect for a green smoothie detox though, or just as your everyday breakfast. Oh. And it is gorgeous. 


A) In the juicer:
Quarter of a pineapple
2 sticks celery
Big chunk of ginger
Big chunk of cucumber (about 4 inches)
2-3 apples
Half a lime (peeled, but pith kept on if you can, for added zing!)

B) In the blender:
1-2 handfuls of spinach
Half a ripe avocado
2 teaspoons raw hemp powder
2 teaspoons wheatgrass powder
The contents of one acidophilus capsule (or other kind of probiotic)


1. Juice all the fruits and veggies from list A.
2. Pour the fresh juice into the blender, adding to the other ingredients (list B).
3. Blend it all up.
4. Drink it.
5. Lovely, innit. 

Hope that gives you a spring in your step :) Have a lovely day.
