This is such a versatile base recipe for your morning smoothie and you can choose to mix up the types of green leafy vegetables each time, perhaps starting with spinach (which tends to be relatively tasteless), progressing to more adventurous greens like kale, cavelo nero, parsley or swiss chard as your palette develops. Feel free to mix up the berries – raspberries, blackberries and wild blueberries tend to be the most nutritionally dense. The key to the smooth texture is the avocado and the frozen berries. What a powerhouse way to start the day!


  • 2 cups dark leafy greens

  • 1/2 cup frozen blackberries

  • 1/2 cup almond milk

  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon

  • 1/2 cup broccoli sprouts

  • 30g plant-based protein powder

  • Turmeric root – 4cm long

  • Ginger root – small chunk

  • Açai berry powder (optional)

  • Water as needed


Throw it all in a blender or Nutribullet and it’s good to go. Too easy!
