Many of us love a green smoothie for breakfast because they can be nutrient dense and easily boost your intake of vitamins and minerals. However, we have to make sure we don’t turn it into a calorie and carb blowout.

Starting the day of with a green smoothie, mango smoothie or berry smoothie can be a joy. And the “blend and go” kitchen utensils we have now make it a whizz to blend, screw on a lid and head out the door.

If you’re an OG green smoothie lover, you’ll be blending leafy greens like kale, roquette and spinach with water or coconut water. The health benefits of leafy greens are enormous: eyesight, heart health, memory prolongers… the list goes on.

Where people can stray to the unhealthy sip of the smoothie is that they can add ingredients to counter the naturally bitter taste of leafy greens. Here some ideas of foods you can add to your smoothie green base and stay heathy:

  • Add a Slendier Fruit Smoothie to your blender first. There are 4 flavours: Apple, Berry, Kiwi and Tropical. They are chock full of Australian fruit and veggies, are yummy on their own, add a natural thickness to your drink and as a base to your green smoothie, they are revolutionary. Best of all, they are under 60 calories and are packed with fibre to keep you feeling full for longer.
  • Nuts and seeds like almond or peanut butter, hemp or chia seeds, and flax meal
  • Herbs and spices like ginger, cinnamon, turmeric, or cocoa powder
