Smoothie Time: Green Machine

Throughout January, many of us will be trying to make better choices when it comes to food, drink and exercise. Whilst some people stick to 'Dry January', others like to make changes to their diet. My family are trying to do that as well, we have started 'Meat-Free Mid-Week' and just trying to make more healthy meals. One drink which is a perfect healthy choice is a green smoothie! Last weekend, I made a green smoothie bowl inspired by a recipe video by Dzung Duong from Honeysuckle. I made a few changes based on what we had in our fridge and I loved it - I posted it on Instagram too! I decided to try it as a normal smoothie as well and it tastes just as good! Spinach is a great option for those who don't always put greens in their smoothies as it doesn't impact the flavour at all. The banana, mango and coconut milk give a gorgeous tropical flavour. It might not look the most appetising, but it tastes amazing! This recipe is also dairy-free.

I hope you enjoy this recipe and let me know if you try it! I took a break from writing smoothie recipes as I couldn't think of any new ones so it feels good to have another post up. If you try out this recipe, let me know if you like it!
