This recipe makes 2 generous smoothies. If you can’t bare to share it, then pop half in a light-proof air-proof flask and keep it in the fridge for later.
STEP ONE: The Juicing
Gather your juicy ingredients.
🌱1 bunch of celery
🌱a thick slice of lemon
Put them all through a good juicer (here’s the one I have). Start and finish with apple for less mess.
STEP TWO: The Blending
Pour the juice you just made to a high-powered blender (here’s the one I have – it’s about half the price of a vitamix, but just as fabulous) and add the remaining ingredients:
🌱a great big handful of spinach
🌱a scoop of pea protein (optional – I find this really helps fill me up)
and however much water makes it the perfect gulpable / spoonable /straw-suitable consistency for you.
While it’s blending, clean you juicer. Seriously. Get it done.
Pour, drink and enjoy!
