Shrek - the loveable & warm Green protein Smoothie

Shrek. He's Green, he's big & he's full of goodness. So is this smoothie. My boys DEVOURED this for breakfast & then fought over the left overs for afternoon tea.

Private healthy cooking workshops and demonstrations for families

I hope you enjoy this delicious smoothie as much as we do! It's got great fats in it & plant based proteins which will keep you fuller for longer. As well as spices such as Turmeric, black pepper & cinnamon which will warm you from the inside out, plus provide you with extra health benefits. 

Recipe (makes 1.5L):

Place all of these ingredients in your high speed blender/Thermomix


2 Handfuls of Spinach

1 Lebanese cucumber (cut into small pieces)

1 small avocado

150g Roasted/steamed pumpkin

1 banana

2 tsp of Organic Turmeric 

2.5 tsp of Cinnamon

Small pinch of black pepper

2 TBSP of pea or rice protein powder 

1L of liquid – I use water, but you could use milk or coconut water

2 handfuls of ice.

Blend until smooth & creamy & enjoy.

I place my excess smoothies into glass jars, so that they are a ready made snack when I’m on the run.
