Ginger, mint and green apple smoothie
A great way to increase the amount of vegetables in your diet is to add them to your smoothies.
According to the Harvard School of Public Health, variety is as important as quantity because no single fruit or vegetable provides all the nutrients you need to be healthy.
So start to experiment and start to throw different fruits and vegetables into your smoothies – pineapple, papaya, berries, baby spinach, kale, lettuce – the sky’s the limit!
This recipe is easily one of my favourites.
This recipe is designed to detoxify the body, increase energy, heal from the inside out and balance hormones.
I make a big batch to last 3 days and drink down this green goodness after a couple of big glasses of water in the morning and usually after my morning exercise.
I just love how it makes me feel and here are but 3 reasons why I just can’t give them up …
🥒 The fibre content goes straight to my digestive system so I can absorb more nutrients
.🥒 My smoothie is full of essential nutrients to help nourish healthy hormones, support my thyroid and balance cortisol
🥒 And green smoothies help to eliminate cravings too

They go to great lengths to ensure everything they source is amazing quality, they stock all my favourite products and I don’t even have to leave the house! Oh and the cherry on the cake is they donate profits to improve food security for vulnerable Aussies.
