Coco Ginger Virtue

Having rather over-indulged last night (burger, chips and a pint or so) I felt the need for one of my more virtuous breakfasts this morning and that usually means a green smoothie. This one I find particularly refreshing and I love the zing of the ginger first thing in the morning. It’s also perfect after a short run or yoga session with the coconut water adding some serious rehydration.

Coco Ginger Virtue

cocnut smoothie

Makes one large glass
  • Handful of spinach
  • Handful of frozen mango
  • A cube (about 1cm) of fresh ginger (I keep cubes of peeled ginger in the freezer and add one of these if I haven’t got any fresh)
  • 1 small banana
  • 200ml Coconut water
  • 100ml tap or filtered water
  • a few fresh mint leaves

Blend everything together and enjoy.
