It's the ultimate healthy breakfast for when you want to feel utterly virtuous - and bonus: it tastes great too.

Green smoothies can sometimes taste bitter and a bit too 'green'. But not this one. It has a big hit of spinach, which is so healthy, but the flavour is really mild so the other lovely ingredients are what you really taste - kiwi, orange, lime and a lovely creaminess from the almond butter. It's the perfect way to start your day. It's really low in fat, high in fibre and rammed with vitamins, anti-oxidants, iron and magnesium, plus a little protein in the almond butter. This recipe serves one. This is because our smoothie recipes (opens in new tab) are best drunk as soon as possible after zapping them (or at least the same morning if you're heading out for exercise). This keeps the flavours as fresh and zingy as possible. If you're making it for two people, you can just double all the ingredients.

Ingredients

  • 125ml water
  • 2 tbsp low-fat natural yogurt
  • 1 large handful of baby spinach leaves
  • 1 peeled and chopped kiwi
  • flesh of ½ a peeled and chopped orange
  • juice of ½ lime
  • 1 tbsp of almond butter

Top tip for this green smoothie

Celery, green apple and cucumber all make good additions to this green goddess drink. If you like a thicker smoothie, reduce the water content and add a banana.
