Why You Need One Of Our Healthy Green Smoothies This Winter

Your Mom always told you to eat your greens and she was right – green vegetables contain vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, essential nutrients and disease-fighting chemicals. But there’s a good reason she had to ‘sneak’ them into your food…because green vegetables aren’t exactly the tastiest of the bunch.

Now that winter is in full force we need to be pumping greens into our systems to help fight off cold & flu germs, nasty viruses and to help us get through those long, dreary days. We also need greens for an extra recovery boost after our workouts. Exercising breaks down muscle tissue (to build back even stronger). And without the right nutrients, you could be weakening your immune system and your body’s ability to recover and regenerate – without even knowing it.
But if the thought of chowing down on a plate of steamed kale and brussel sprouts is enough to make your stomach turn, then you’ve got to try one (or all) of our healthy green smoothies. They’re highly nutritious, bursting with flavour and will keep your health in check this winter.

To help match you with the right healthy green smoothie, we’ve broken them down for you

Greena Colada

Made with creamy coconut milk, banana, mango, cold-pressed lime, spinach and your choice of protein, our Greena Colada is a taste of the tropics, even on a chilly winter’s day. Spinach contains high doses of beta carotene, which helps with growth and repairing the body’s tissues – making the Greena Colada the perfect post-workout shake.

King Kale

We know that kale is one of the healthiest foods on the planet – it’s packed with enough nutrients to combat heart disease, diabetes, lower the risk of cancer, blood pressure and contains flu-fighting Vitamin C. But it’s not always the most pleasant tasting. The solution? Our King Kale smoothie. It’s made with coconut water, sweet, tropical fruits like pineapple and mango, your choice of protein and of course, a healthy hit of kale. This one’s thirst-quenching, refreshing and by far one of our most popular green smoothies. Try it – we swear you’ll be converted!

Avocado Bliss

Containing more potassium than bananas and loaded with enough healthy fats to reduce inflammation, avocados are easily one of nature’s superfoods. Added to our smoothies, avocado’s rich texture produces a glorious, ‘soft-serve ice cream’ effect – and tastes just as good. If you love the idea of a green smoothie, but need to satisfy your sweet tooth, our Avocado Bliss smoothie is the one for you. Made with hydrating coconut water, velvety vanilla protein powder, spinach, avocado, naturally sweet apples and a dash of dates, we don’t call it ‘bliss’ for nothing.

Avo Kale

For the ultimate green hit, try our Avo Kale. Packed with spinach, kale, avocado and gut boosting spirulina, the Avo Kale is one of our most nutrient-dense smoothies. Plus, it’s blended with organic coconut milk, vanilla protein powder and juicy pineapple, making it a far more appealing option than chowing down on a green salad.
