Our Green Smoothie is simply the best one you can find. It’s extremely healthy, so refreshing and delicious. Made with 120 g of kale and 60 g of green peas, and yet extremely yummy! You need to give it a try! 🙂
For the making of this green smoothie, we use frozen lemon (zest included). We simply cut a fresh lemon into small pieces, store them in a tupperware in the freezer and, after 6 hours, they are ready to be used! You won’t believe how fresh and yummy the smoothie becomes after this!
Do you know how healthy kale is? (extracted from Medical News Today): The nutrients it contains support healthy skin, hair, and bones. The fibre content enhances digestion and contributes to cardiovascular health. With more nutritional value than spinach, it may help improve blood glucose control in diabetes, lower the risk of cancer, reduce blood pressure, and help prevent the development of asthma.
The kale we use is frozen but we don’t buy it frozen. We purchase it fresh and freeze it ourselves.
Green peas are a popular vegetable. They are also quite nutritious and contain a fair amount of fibre and antioxidants. Additionally, research shows they may help protect against some chronic illnesses, such as heart disease and cancer.
Green peas are one of the best plant-based sources of protein, which is a major reason why they are so filling, along with their high amount of fibre. Eating protein increases the levels of certain hormones in your body that reduce appetite. Protein works together with fibre to slow digestion and promote feelings of fullness.
Green peas have an impressive nutrition profile. Their calorie content is fairly low, with only 62 calories per 1/2-cup (170-gram) serving. About 70% of those calories come from carbs and the rest are provided by protein and a small amount of fat. Furthermore, peas contain just about every vitamin and mineral you need, in addition to a significant amount of fibre. (Extracted from healthline.com)
Do you know how important is to consume flax seeds daily?
Flaxseeds have been consumed for at least 6,000 years, making them one of the world’s first cultivated superfoods. Flaxseeds contain anti-inflammatory omega-3 fatty acids, along with antioxidant substances called lignans that help promote hormonal balance in addition to several other benefits of flaxseed. Benefits of flaxseed include helping improve digestion, skin, cardiovascular health, cholesterol and hormone balance while fighting cancer and even sugar cravings — and that’s just the beginning!

Ripe bananas provide us with a natural sweet flavour without having to add any kind of sweeteners.
We use frozen bananas to get a quick creamy effect. You could use non frozen ones. The flavour will be the same, just the consistency will change slightly. A high-speed blender is needed in order to handle the blending of frozen bananas. If you do not have one, then you should use non frozen ones.
If you have never frozen bananas before, here is a quick guide on how to do so:
Wait a few days until the bananas are ripe enough (the more ripe they are, the sweeter the milkshake will become).
- Peel the bananas.
- Cut them in small pieces.
- Place them into a freezer-safe container or bag.
- Place the container in the freezer overnight.
