I like to use an equal split of pea shoots, red mustard leaf & spinach in the 100g of greens used in this recipe. Have a play with different types of greens available until you find one that you really like, my wife prefers to use only spinach.
- 50g Organic Mango
- 150g Organic Pineapple
- 3 Organic Medium Bananas
- 200ml Raw Coconut water
- 100g Green Leafs
Peel & chop the Mango, pineapple & bananas then wash off the greens. Add all to the blender with the Coconut water & blend everything together.
I am not a fan of ice cold smoothies, this is why I never use ice in my recipes, you can, of course, freeze some of the fruits if you prefer the chilled option. I just think it kills the flavour of the drink, all fruits out in the wild are ripening in the sun & taste so much nicer as the flavour is released when warmer. Besides that, the ice or frozen fruit thickens the drink & with the amounts of fruit that I use in my recipes, it just is not needed to aid consistency.
Using high quantities of fruit produces a rich sweet flavour, also allowing me the required daily consumption to maintain optimum levels of energy throughout the day.
If the smoothies have too thick a consistency you can always add some raw organic coconut water, spring water even freshly squeezed orange juice to dilute to your preference.
Do not forget all fruits will be variable with juice/water content & sweetness, so have a play adding more of one fruit or another with additional juice when necessary – there are no rules.
