How’s your weekend so far? 🙂
It was quite cold and rainy for the past few days and it is so hot today!
Please take care of yourself and drink more water (if not green smoothies)!
This new recipe may sound slightly more complicated but it’s not going to taste horrible or take you hours to prepare. I only included more greens which are more unique in taste.
So, here’s the awesome goodness I put into the blender :
1 x Coconut (Water & Flesh)
2 cups x Baby Spinach leaves
3 stalks x Celery
Some Cilantro leaves
2 x Avocados
2 x Green Kiwis
1 x Chinese Pear
Cilantro has a very strong distinct ‘herb-ish’ (for lack of a better word) taste. I Googled, and apparently some people think it tastes like soap (?!) and really dislike it. So, if you are one of them, feel free to omit them from your blends…
But do note that Cilantro contains high concentrations of antioxidants and is known to be effective in removing heavy metals from our bodies. You might want to read more about it here.
I love adding Cilantro in my drinks and soups. These were all I had in the fridge because my mum used it up for cooking, else I would have added more!
Another strong tasting vegetable I added here is Celery. I have a few friends who don’t like the taste of Celery too. But this recipe will mask a good extent of the taste. I can’t be for sure which was the ingredient that helped, but after I blended all of these, the Celery taste was not overpowering at all. Perhaps, because I only added 3 stalks.
The one main difference between this recipe and the previous ones (Beginner Bliss and Intermediate Inspiration) is that I replaced cold drinking water with Coconut water. I also removed the Coconut flesh and added them in my blend. As you can see from the picture, the coconut I bought was already pre-cut at the top. I have actually tried
chopping cutting a whole coconut before. Hmm… let’s just say… it was a nightmare >_<
And this is the time when I play dress up with my green smoothie!
This is a great idea for serving green smoothies at parties. It keeps the flavour in and is aesthetically pleasing.
This green smoothie has a rather thick consistency because of the Avocados and Coconut flesh. All the fruits and vegetables complement each other very well and it leaves a very refreshing after taste. This is actually quite filling and is by far, one of my favourite recipes!
