smooth sundays
Take a step back, slow down, it’s Sunday. Let’s play, relax, and find the time that escapes us every other day.

Sunday is all about beginnings, from starting the day off more slowly than the frantic mornings where we race against the bells of the alarm, the school, and the office. It is the day that affords us the time to do brunch and take naps, indulge in long walks, long drives, and long lunches.
I adore Sundays.
I’m a love-my-food-ruts kind of girl. You know the type, eating the same thing day, after day, after day. Sundays is my time to play and create a new food-rut for the week to follow, this playtime begins with a new green smoothie.
I have found no better way to get nutrient packed green vegetables into myself or my children. The three of us are green smoothie addicts. For those of you who have not yet acquainted yourself or your family with the lush green goodness, I propose you get onto it this Sunday! If you have already been seduced then let’s take the game up a notch and get together for ‘smooth while the sun shines’. You guessed it, green smoothies for the day and your choice of anything vibrant and fresh for dinner.

The perfect first date with Green Smoothie

1 (150g) Frozen Banana – peel and chop prior to freezing

1 cup (150g) Frozen Blueberries

1 – 2 handfuls of spinach, or cups if you prefer to measure.

1 cup of coconut water or water

Blend and enjoy.

Blueberries -€“ High in antioxidants that are required for building our defence against free radical damage.

Bananas -Great source of potassium which is essential for good nerve and muscle function and assists in maintaining a healthy fluid balance within the body.

Spinach -€“ One of natures most nutrient dense foods, containing dietary fibre, calcium, magnesium, iron, the list goes on.

Water -€“ Flushes toxins out of vital organs and carries nutrients to your cells.

Thank you for saying to peel and cut the babnana before freezing, a little thing that I had completely missed until now 🙂 Cant wait to try this smoothie – might have to be morning tea!!

My 5 year old loved this one, it is a struggle to get her to eat anything green but she didn’t even notice 🙂

Fabulous Amie, I am glad your daughter liked it. My son is very fussy and I find the smoothies to be a great way to get him to have his vegetables. I hope any others you try are just as successful. Many thanks, Bianca

Hi. I am wanting to try this recipe but I am allergic to banana. What can you suggest that would be just as good?

Reply
bianca August 20, 2013 - 2:34 pm

Hi Ash, I would perhaps try pear? Let me know what you think. Bianca

Can you please suggest an alternative to “Milo” which seems to be the drink of choice in many aged care residential care situations?
Thanks

This smoothie is DELISH!! I didn’t have any spinach so I used kale – I also tricked the kids because of the colour it looks (& tastes) like chocolate so we called it ‘chocky nana’ they LOVED it. I love your website thank you so much!!
