Hi everyone! I’m Claire from Almost Skinny Vegan Food. You may have seen me contributing to Healthy Vegan Fridays, but if not it’s very nice to meet you. After one hell of a case of Monday-itus imagine my delight when I received a friendly email from Katherine offering me the chance to do a guest post for her while she was delivering a little love bundle into the world.

Citrus and Capsicum Green Smoothie


I’ve been drooling over the wonderful world of green thickies for yonks now but it’s only recently I managed to snag myself a second hand vitamix and join in the fun! I did try them in my conventional blender but… I ended up chewing them and did a wonderful shrek impression with the amount that remained in my teeth! I ended up juicing my greens, freezing them into ice blocks and adding them to my smoothies (or just juicing) so if you’re lacking a high powered blender you can always give that a go. So, where did I start? with greens of course! then I worked out how I wanted to sweeten it, whether I wanted it to be creamy or not. I’m not sure I have a fave green smoothie yet but this one is definitely new and interesting. I decided to share a refreshing citrus and capsicum green smoothie with you today.
