The ingredients for my Mean Green shake (other variations also have spinach and frozen berries):
One blenders worth (approx 1L) is about:
- half an apple
- 1/4-1/3 cucumber
- 2 sticks celery
- handful herbs
- handful spinach
- handful frozen berries
- juice of half a lemon
- bit of ginger
- top to the mark with cold green tea
It all goes into my Nutribullet esque blender (I actually got a Salter Nutri Pro from Robert Dyas, £50 quid including delivery), I give it a whizz and grab a spoon – it gets thick! Absolutely BANGING. <100 cals, <25g carbs, full of nutriments and filling too.
Also great potential for pretty colours, and colours = health… right?
