There really is nothing better to start off your day with.... Not only your stomach will thank you for all the nutrients and light-load first thing after waking up but your mid morning energy levels will be reason enough to make this delicious smoothie apart of your daily morning ritual - forever!
My love affair started with Green Smoothies when I tried the Greenie at SWICH cafe in Bali. They keep it simple with Mango, Banana + Spinach and it was enough to get me entirely hooked. Being a vegetarian and a huge lover of fruit, this was the perfect fix to get my spinach intake without feasting on a whole raw plant and get some delicious island mango in me without the admin of cutting and peeling it (Let's be honest - they're not the most romantic fruit to eat straight up!).
And so it began... From here I have played around with many forms of the 'Green Smoothie' concept including green Apples, Celery (Not a favourite flavour of mine personally), Cucumber, Avocado, Kiwi Fruit and of course Kale.
After many years of exploration around creating the perfect Green smoothie / juice, there are 2 very important pieces of advice I have for you ladies who are yet to indulge.
1) Get an epic blender or you'll be finding bits of spinach / kale in your teeth at 4pm
2) Always balance the greens out with a various 'intense' fruit such as Banana, Mango, Lemon, Kiwi Fruit, Pineapple .... Otherwise you're basically eating Cold Green Gazpacho soup for breakfast. Who know's, maybe that's your thing...
So here goes one of my favourite Go-To Green Machine Smoothies for Breakfast. Once you've tried it, let me know your thoughts!

You hear us talking about our 'Plant Dyed Apparel' but what does that actually mean and how on earth does one dye clothing with plants you ask!? I know, it's a buzzy concept and one that I too couldn't quite believe when I first heard about it either. But guess what? This is where it all started! Plants are where the original colours started... and we are here to bring it back - no chemicals added!
My Mother in law first made this for me many moons ago and it was instant love at first bite! Tangy yet fresh, more-ish yet healthy. This lemon tomato pasta has all the ingredients to warrant being on the weekly meal schedule without too much hassle. Hey, it's even good enough to wow your pals for dinner on Friday night! Serve it up with a fresh garden salad or opt for a carbo load with some toasted ciabatta with fresh garlic butter? Mmmm hmmm. If this doesn't have you hungry for dinner... I'm not sure we can be friends. Bon Appetit friends x
