Creamy Green Chlorella Smoothie with Apple and Mint

This is honestly one of the best ever tasting and nourishing green smoothies we've tried. And we've tried a lot! Health and wellness expert Amy Crawford, founder of The Holistic Ingredient created this fantastic green smoothie with the immune system benefits of chlorella, plus a fantastic array of nourishing ingredients. We recommend this smoothie for when you're feeling a little under the weather.

Hey Amy! Over to you:

If you're feeling a bit shy in the smoothie department, you really mustn't; practice makes perfect, or close enough. I find my best creations come from leftovers in my fridge actually, enhanced with a few necessary super food additions, as per the recipe below.

Ingredients (serves 1):

  • 130ml coconut water
  • 1/2 cucumber
  • 1/2 apple
  • 1/3 avocado
  • 1 handful baby spinach
  • 1 handful fresh mint
  • 1 teaspoon Organic Burst Chlorella
  • 1 teaspoon yacon syrup (a fibre packed syrup from the South American Yacon Root, readily available online or in a health food store) 
  • 1 teaspoon chia seeds
  • 1cm slice fresh turmeric

Method:

Throw all ingredients into a high-powered blender and whizz until smooth and creamy.

Amy Crawford’s smoothie tips:

  • Add Organic Burst Chlorella! Gram for gram, chlorella contains the highest amount of chlorophyll than any other plant on earth. A fantastic addition for detoxifying your body. 
  • If you don't often use cucumber in your smoothies, you should give it a whirl. Cucumber adds a lovely freshness to your concoctions without an overbearing flavour - plus it's raw and that's a very special treat for your body. 
  • Where possible try and include those highly nutritious ingredients that you may not otherwise factor into your diet regularly, such as fresh or powdered turmeric. Turmeric is a fantastic anti-inflammatory, in fact some say it can work as well as anti-inflammatory medication, without the nasty side effects. It is said to fight cold and flu, to aid indigestion and weight loss. 
  • Try and get at least a small handful of raw green leaves into your smoothie on occasion - high in iron, calcium, potassium and magnesium, and most notably Vitamin K. Very few of us meet the recommended intake of dark leafy green vegetables per week, this is a great way to ensure you are not missing out on all that goodness.
