Comforting Winter Smoothie

I think the phrase under the weather was made for the past week. Basically everyone I know has been a victim of windy, wet October the past few days, including yours truly.

I was feeling really grim earlier so whipped this up to try and combat my cold - it tasted lush so I wanted to share it!

You'll need:

  • 2 x handfuls of spinach
  • 1 x banana, chopped
  • 1 heaped teaspoon of wheatgrass
  • 1 heaped teaspoon of spirulina 
  • 1/2 avocado 
  • Frozen berries: raspberries, blueberries, blackcurrants, blackberries
  • 4 x strawberries, chopped
  • Coconut water 
  • Unsweetened soya milk
  • Dessicated coconut to top
  • Chia seeds to top 
Of course you can substitute out the coconut water (I only buy it when I'm feeling flush as I think it's a little pricey!) for standard tap, and the soya for almond, it's up to you.

It's creamy, fruity, really filling and brimming with so many nutrients.

Hopefully it bullies off my sore throat before tonight, I'm out for a friend's birthday - fingers crossed!
