1 cup of water or freshly squeezed apple juice / 250 ml / 8 ounces
1 cup of spinach / 30 grams
Remove the core from your apple. Then chop your apple. It’s up to you whether you leave the skin on. If you peel the apple first, your green smoothie will be smoother. If you want to save time, you can use this toolwhich cores and slices your apple in seconds.
Peel your orange and chop. Remove as much of the white pith as possible as this can make your green smoothie taste bitter. You can use this toolto remove the peel without using a knife and chopping board. If you have a high speed blender you can even throw your cored apple and peeled orange into the blender whole.
Peel your banana and break into chunks.
You can choose to use either fresh or frozen spinach. Use a packed cup of fresh spinach. If you are using frozen spinach, use about 30 grams of spinach. It doesn’t matter if you use too much spinach because you still won’t be able to taste it and you’ll get even more nutrients.
Add the chopped apple, orange and banana into the blender with the water and leafy greens.
Blend on full power in a personal blender, for about 1 minute or until smooth. If you are going to use a standard blender, you might want to double the recipe to make sure the blender blades will still turn.
