This has been my breakfast for the last few months over summer and I am loving it. It totally powers me up for the day and gets me energized ready to work. I played around with the recipe a lot in the first few months and I seem to off found my recipe I stick to each and everyday now. Its absolutely jammed packed with nutrients and the fibre in it will leave you full for hours.

I generally have 1-2 large glasses for breakfast and I tend to sip on it and “eat” my smoothie. So those glasses may take me 5 minutes to drink some mornings and others an hour while I am writing a blog or answering emails.  I then store the rest in the fridge for the rest of the day. Generally another glass will go with Ben at some point of the day and I may then have a glass with lunch or after a horse ride in the afternoon. Its such a great way to get extra vegetables into your diet and I love how great it makes me feel.
