I'm back on my smoothies.
Did I tell you I stopped making them for just over a week and came down with a chest infection? I was struggling with the dark winter days. I was so tired and mornings were a bit of a struggle so the smoothies were given the push. It was all I could do to get us out the door in the morning.
I felt even worse for not having them and then the chest infection took root.
Well I'm still hating these dark dreich days, but now I'm back on my smoothies and definitely feeling better for it.
This one is a new combination for me. Honeydew melon, frozen spinach and avocado are the main ingredients. I had a wee taste of the avocado when I was making it. Well you have to don't you? It was difficult not to jut scoff the lot. I really do love avocado.
The smoothie itself is smooth and mellow. The flavour is fresh and creamy but there's no kick to it. You don't taste the spinach, but the melon and avocado do come through. A real pleasure to drink.
Melon, Spinach and Avocado Smoothie
A mellow and creamy cream smoothie with a hint of sweetness.
- ½ honeydew melon
- 1 cube frozen spinach
- 1 ripe avocado
- 1 heaped tsp hemp protein powder
- 200 ml apple juice
- 200 ml water
1. Remove the flesh from the melon and avocado and add to a blender jug. 2. Add the frozen spinach, hemp powder, apple juice and water. 3. Whizz until smooth, 4. If you don't have a powerful blender like my Optimum 9400 defrost the spinach first as it could burn out the motor in your blender. 5. Pour, sit back and enjoy!
