Refreshing Green Super Smoothie

Type of meal: BreakfastDrink

We got silver beet this week to try in smoothies because it was the cheapest green, and it often is. From what I understand it’s actually just as good for you as things like Kale. I’ve never used silver beet in a smoothie before, so I wasn’t sure how it would come out. After a little bit of experimentation I came up with this combination that I was really impressed with. It tastes great with the silver beet being a very subtle flavour.

Depending on how much water you use it’s more like a juice than a smoothie, and each of the flavours comes through to make for a green juice or smoothie that is filling, subtly sweet, and very refreshing. I found one glass (around 250ml) kept me full all morning.

Enjoy!
