Ultimate Green Smoothie

Wednesday, January 6, 2016

1 frozen banana

750ml unsweetened almond milk

1 tbsp chia seeds

1 tbsp matcha green tea powder

4 kale stalks

½ ripe avocado

5 medjool dates, pitted

Smoothie maker, food processor or hand held blender

 

5 mins
Serves 4

Green smoothies are a tricky art from, get the balance of sweetness and bitterness wrong and you’re in for a whole world of pain.  A recent visit to Green Beards juice shop in Ranelagh provided the inspiration for this one which is easily the best I have tried.  Add whatever other vegetables (spinach or broccoli works well) you fancy but don’t skimp on the medjool dates as they add add a vital sweet toffee taste.

Add all the ingredients to a high speed blender and blend until you’re left with a smoothie consistency.

TOP TIP

If you find the mixture is too thick add a little water until you have a pourable consistency.
Pour into glasses and serve.

    This is really yummy and versatile. I used coconut milk instead of almond milk, and I added an extra tablespoon of chia seeds and a tablespoon of coconut oil so that the smoothie is more substantial. I will try to use medjool dates in more smoothies in the future, they are sooo good!

    • Great additions! Can’t get enough of dates in smoothies now! :)

  • I’d say just leave it out, especially if you won’t use it in anything else. Nothing else will really give the same flavour. Hope that helps. :)

    Tried a variation on this with dates and almond butter. Delish! But wonder what u did with the other avocado half?! They go brown so quickly..
