It’s my birthday this week, and one of the great things about having a birthday is that you get to give yourself little treats throughout the day. I seem to centre mine around food, and I have been planning my meals for today with a lot of excitement! First things first – a breakfast aperitive – a green smoothie of course. Lately I have been rocking out some grapefruit numbers, but today it’s an Apple Pie Smoothie. This smoothie is nutrient rich, energising, cleansing, and delicious!
Apple Pie Smoothie
5 large stems of kale, spinach or silverbeet (de-boned)
1 apple, chopped (not Granny Smith, something a little sweeter)
1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon (or to taste – start with less and add if you need)
1/4 – 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 cup almond milk/rice milk/milk of your choice
1 teaspoon spirulina or chlorella
1-2 teaspoons chia seeds
Water to your desired thickness – around 1/2 cup is a good start
Blend, taste, adjust the spices if you need to, and ENJOY!
Another cute idea is to top the smoothie with home made muesli, and eat it with a spoon!
Much joy and deliciousness. x
