My new favourite green smoothie recipe

THIS ISLAND LIFE | Green smoothies with Blackmores Super Greens

Sponsored by Blackmores.

I love a good smoothie and make one almost every single day. When I’m not that hungry or in a rush, I’ll have one for breakfast in the morning. And if I get hungry between meals or need some extra energy before an exercise session, I’ll have one as a snack.

I recently came back from a yoga detox retreat in Bali where we followed our daily morning yoga class with a green smoothie. I’ve always made mine more fruit-based, but after spending five days on the green variety, I was keen to incorporate more veggies into my smoothie recipes when I got back home. So when Blackmores invited me to try their new Blackmores Vitality Super Greens, the timing couldn’t of been more perfect.

Vitality Super Greens are a really easy way to pack extra nutrients into your favourite smoothies and juices, and you can even mix it with water. It’s enriched with zinc, vitamin C and fibre, and has 17 super foods like kale, spinach, broccoli and parsley – plus, it’s Australian Certified Organic. With so many greens, I was worried it might overpower my favourite smoothie flavour combinations, but it was the perfect level of greeniness.
