Summer Smoothie Recipe

This smoothie came into existence as I wanted another way to get my greens, without necessarily having to cook with them. The wonder of the spinach, is that you don’t taste it, but you will see it in the interesting hue. If you want your smoothie to look pretty, you will have to up the berries and go lightly with the spinach. My motivation here is less about looks and more about functionality.


Servings: 3 large smoothie-bowls

  • 1 x can of coconut milk

  • 250 g strawberries

  • 100-150 g blueberries

  • 1 x pineapple

  • 1 x big handful of spinach

  • 2-3 frozen bananas (the frozen bananas have a unique texture and make your smoothie nice and cool)


The basis of the recipe is the coconut milk, the spinach and the bananas. The sweet fruits you can experiment with and substitute. Mangoes and raspberries also work well.
