I love smoothies! They're such a great way to get a quick, nutritious, delicious, economical meal - and you can't ask much more than that now can you? Fruit smoothies are great, but adding some greens to make a green smoothie makes them even healthier.
This is my basic smoothie recipe which can easily be adapted to use whatever you have on hand.
1 tablespoon of natural yoghurt or low fat cottage cheese
Fruit - whatever you like. I often use an apple and a banana, or peaches and a banana.
1 teaspoon of raw (liquid) honey.
Dash of cinnamon.
Enough liquid so that the mixture can be blended - use water or juice or milk or soy milk or rice milk, whatever your preference.
Put into a blender and blend. Drink.
To make a basic green smoothie just add a handful of greens to the above - for example spinach, lettuce or parsley.
