Pea Shoot Smoothie

 Now playing:

All smoothie posts won't include a photo. Not even my face posing with a cup of green goodness.
Salad smoothies are generally beautiful shades of green and as much as I like picturing food for the blog I'm not one to post photos of smoothies which look the same.
The most important aspect of any smoothie/juice is not what it looks like but what's INSIDE. Most smoothie companies are clever and cover what their product looks like with fancy packaging, because not many people will pick up a bottle of green looking liquid!
I've been smoothing for two weeks every morning and already noticed a positive difference in energy levels, boost of skins radiance and weight loss. Now it's time to share these crazy recipes with you.
Invest in a jug blender and you have to try one of these smoothies in the morning. They might sound out of the ordinary to a few of you. Experiment and see what works for you.
Pea Shoot Smoothie
200ml oat milk
1 tsp Manuka honey
1 cm chunk of ginger
Half an avocado
Squeeze half a lemon
1 large banana
35g Pea shoots
Everything in a blender for 2 minutes on a high setting.
Colour: light green like a Bramley apple.
Taste - Hint of ginger, sweet and powerful banana overtones.
Health benefits of pea shoots: they have seven times more vitamin C than blueberries and four times more vitamin A than tomatoes.
Join the green revolution.
Search for 'Mita' on Vine and use these short clips as mini manuals, this way you can see what I'm putting in my smoothies as well as reading about them on here.
Always drink enough water and aim for a healthy lunch and dinner...and maybe a little cake on the weekends :)
