Deliciously healthy spinach apple banana smoothie

Spinach apple banana smoothie
Whether a start-up to your morning or an afternoon snack, this deliciously healthy spinach apple banana smoothie is a delicious way to get healthy.

There is something so virtuous about starting your day with a glass of strikingly green liquid. Green smoothies, in particular, have become a major health trend thanks to the clean eating crowd but they have started to receive some negative press about being bad for you, that I think is a little unfair. Some of the reasons are that smoothies can still contain too much sugar and they actually have a lot of calories. It is important to note that I am talking about homemade smoothies, not popping to a juice bar where there may be some added refined sugars and other hidden ingredients. I also have to say that a lot of the smoothie recipes out there do put me off trying them out. This is why I always keep my smoothies simple, and if it helps people to pack in a bit more fruit and veggies into their diet then I think it is a positive thing.

Smoothies are quick and easy to make. All you need to do is roughly chop up a load of fruit, add the rest of your ingredients and blitz away. If I am running short on time in the mornings then I make my smoothie first and drink it while getting ready.
