I suddenly felt the need to go green after a day of less than ideal eating! So I searched the internet for something suitable and came across this excellent recipe for a Green Power Smoothie from

I took the basic recipe and added a few extra things that I had on hand, such as fresh mint out of the garden and wheatgrass powder. I didn’t use ice, as I think the body prefers room temperature drinks (there’s a fair bit of research that suggests that). As such, you will need to add more than the suggested 1 cup of almond milk (or juice or water) to get the right consistency. I also tossed in a few pumpkin seeds, but if you don’t have a high powered blender, I’d stay away from those! Really, anything goes with a recipe like this, so adapt away to your heart’s content.
