Green juice & smoothie

Green juice & smoothie

Juices and smoothies can be a wonderful way to incorporate additional vegetables and fruit into your diet, especially if you have a limited appetite or struggle to digest fibrous foods. This recipe is packed with green vegetables and herbs. It’s easy to make and refreshing – excellent with breakfast or to help rehydrate after doing some exercise! Don’t panic if you don’t have a juicer, a blender will also work well; just strain through a sieve before drinking.
