Guest post - Super Green Smoothie

I'd like to introduce a friend of mine, Mark who I met earlier this year at a friends wedding. Mark is also a green smoothie lover, tree hugger and animal lover, so it was no wonder that we made friends. I have no doubt that Mark will be a friend for life, even though he lives on the other side of the world in Australia. Thank goodness for social media!

I asked Mark if he would like to write a guest post and he replied that he would love to! So drum roll please................................

Super Green Smoothie

The health benefits from eating a clean diet high in nutritious green and wholesome super foods are endless. I like to kick start the day with a smoothie that is not only going to give me the energy to keep going until lunch time but also gives me the key health benefits of being Alkalizing, supports liver cleansing and detoxification, aids digestion, maintains bowel regularity, high in protein, provides high dose of Omega 3, is vegan, low gluten, soy free and dairy free PLUS tastes fantastic!

What you will need:
600ml Purified water
1/2 cup Cucumber
1/2 Lime
1/4 bunch parsley
2-3 sprigs of mint leaves
5-6 green grapes (adjust to your desire of sweetness)
1 table spoon of Chia seeds
Organic Pea and brown rice protein ( I use an Australian brand called Nutra life whole+ organic protein which is a blend of both pea and brown rice)
Liver detoxification powder (found in all good health food stores- I use an Australian brand called Nutra life Detox & cleanse)


Add all ingredients to the blender and blend until all ingredients have combined into a beautiful super green smoothie!

This recipe is so adaptable to your needs and tastes. If you like it sweeter add more fruit such as a banana or blue berries. 

You could also give it an extra boost by adding your favourite spirulina or chlorella powder for an ultimate energy and alkalizing effect!!


Thanks for sharing Mark. I've tried your green smoothie this morning and I love it. The lime and mint combination is awesome.
