My belly-filling green smoothie

I go through juicing/smoothie phases.

Somehow I never manage to make a habit out of it, just when I think I am doing well some new research will pop up saying that juicing or smoothies are actually not that good for you, that you destroy all nutrients, that you’re left over with only the sugar and so on. So now I just do what I please. All in moderation I guess.

Lately, I have been enjoying homemade Bircher muesli for breakfast but on the weekend I ran out. So not wanting to undo all the week’s good breakfast work I decided to make a smoothie with what was left in my fridge. I found some frozen banana (yes still working on my huge supply), a cucumber and fresh spinach.

I threw everything in the bender with a little water and ended up with a really nice, nutrient dense smoothie, which surprisingly kept me full for the whole morning. Must have been all the fibre that I wouldn’t get it if I put it through a juicer 😉 Usually if I only have a drink I am hungry within two hours and eat whatever I can get my hands on, undoing all my hard work and plans to eat healthy… but that will be another blog post.

You can add a touch of sweetness by replacing the water with coconut water.
