Green Breakfast SmoothieYou will need

  • 1 head of romaine lettuce, roughly chopped
  • 1 cucumber (peeled, if not organic), trimmed and roughly chopped
  • a handful of young-leaf spinach
  • 1 avocado, peeled and stoned
  • 2cm cube of root ginger, peeled
  • 16 mint leaves
  • juice of 2 limes
  • 4 kiwi fruit, peeled
  • 4 tbsp cashew nut butter (from a jar or homemade, see kitchen secret; check it’s gluten free)
  • about 500ml coconut water (or water)
  • 4 ice cubes


Blend everything together in batches in a large high-speed blender – add a little more water if you think the juice should be a little thinner. Serve in glasses.

Top Tip: To make cashew nut butter, soak 4 tbsp cashew nuts in water overnight, then drain, rinse and blend with 100ml water until smooth.
