A delicious snack or light breakfast, this power smoothie is beautifully balanced and filling. I’m kind of obsessed, in a healthy way.

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 cup (45 g) baby spinach leaves
  • 1 cup (250 ml) milk
  • 1 tablespoon 100% nut butter
  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1 fresh Medjool date, pitted
  • ½ cup ice cubes

METHOD

  1. Combine all of the ingredients in a blender and blitz for 30 seconds or until it has a creamy texture.

TIPS

  • Use the milk that makes you feel good, whether that’s full-fat or low-fat dairy or nut milk to make it dairy-free or vegan. 
  • Be sure to peel and slice your banana before freezing so you don’t break your blender. 
  • If your machine can’t chop ice, simply add a few cubes before you drink it.
