This is my go-to smoothies every other week. It's really easy to make. It's green and refreshing. Whenever I get bored silly with plain greek yoghurts, I quickly raided my fridge for fruits and vegetables to make a yummy smoothie.
It's handy to have a blender to make this magical green smoothie. And a mix of fresh and frozen ingredients. Takes minutes to blend them up. Truly!
INGREDIENTS (Recipe serves 2-4, depending on the size of bottle or glass) 2 tablespoons full of greek yoghurt (or any yoghurt you fancy). When I meant full, like a ginormous mountain made of yoghurt. 1 cup of sliced or diced frozen mango* 3/4 cup almond milk** a dash of coconut water to taste 1 - 1 1/2 cup of loose spinach leaves (do not compress them) *If you have fresh ones, by all means, use them! I would use 2 fresh mangoes and remove the pip. **any milk of your choice
OPTIONAL : add 1/4 cup of vanilla custard if you feel like a milkshake kind of smoothie.
And if you're up for a smoothie challenge, you can create this ombre drink in glass bottles.
HOW TO MAKE AN OMBRE SMOOTHIE DRINK :
- You need a lot of patience. Like 2-3 hours worth of waiting around for each layer of smoothie to freeze up.
- My tip is to create a jug of dark shade of green smoothie to start with. Fill up 4-5 different shades of green in separate glasses (or go crazy with as many shades), add 1-2 spoonful of plain yoghurt each time to the green smoothie.
- Stir well before pouring them into the bottle or glassware.
- Allow each layer to semi-freeze before adding another layer.
Have fun + stay healthy! Keep being awesome folks!
