The Week of the Green Smooth at LifenFork

DAY 4

This is a real tropical delight. Take a quiet moment.  Close your eyes and imagine you are on holiday. The Verdict?

The recipe

1 cup of kale chopped finely

1 cup of coconut water or coconut milk

1 grated apple

1 orange

1 cup of frozen pineapple

1 frozen mango

The method

Place the kale and coconut water / milk into the blender. Blitz until smooth.

Add the grated apple, orange, pineapple and mango. Blitz.

Serve immediately into your preferred glass.

Enjoy.

The verdict

This is a real winner. Delicious, creamy and fruity.... but still green!  We clawed back from yesterday's challenges and we are back on top. Keep an eye out for tomorrow's smoothie. I think we will up the anti a notch and try to jam some more health into our morning pick me up.

Day Three - The Green Smoothie Challenge

The Week of the Green Smooth at LifenFork

DAY 3

It took a little bit of convincing, but after several pleas from one team member to make our green smoothie "pink", we took up the challenge.  We wanted to keep our greens but  make  it more visually friendly to those less brave. The Verdict?

The recipe

1 cup of english spinach chopped finely

1 cup of water

1 grated apple

1 orange

1 cup of frozen raspberries

The method

Place the english spinach and water into the blender. Blitz until smooth.

Add the apple, raspberries and orange.

Blitz. Serve immediately into your preferred glass.

Enjoy.

The verdict

Interesting.

This pink, greenie had an enjoyable flavour, but definitely needs some work.  Pink in colour?.... yes.  Vibrant pink.....not really.

We fell slightly short with the texture. This is a lesson learnt for us. To make green smoothies really enjoyable, you must blitz, blitz and blitz some more. Will we be back for more green smoothie tomorrow? Definitely!

Day Two - Green Smoothie Challenge

The Week of the Green Smooth at LifenFork

DAY 2

Today we took the green smoothie one step further, but we still sat comfortably on the safe side. Enough sweetness to distract us from the kale, but for some reason it did not taste quite as sweet as yesterday.   The Verdict?

 

The recipe

1.5 cups of kale chopped finely

1 cup of water

1 frozen mango

2 frozen bananas

1 orange

1 kiwi fruit

 

The method

Place the kale and water into the blender. Blitz until smooth.

Add the frozen mango and banana and blitz.

Add the orange and kiwi fruit. Blitz, blitz blitz.

Serve immediately into your preferred glass.

Enjoy.

 

The verdict

Vibrant, green, slightly sweet and smooth. The bananas and mango in this smoothie provided it with and lovely silkiness. Pleasing for most of the team. We still have 2 kids willing to drink the green goodness, the third kid, couldn’t be convinced to dabble.
