Vegan green smoothie

Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp ground flax seed
  • 1 orange, peeled, excess pith and seeds (if any) removed
  • 100 g / 3.5 oz raw spinach*
  • 1 ripe banana (frozen works well too)
  • 1 ripe peach
  • 2 tsp grated ginger, adjust to taste
  • a good squeeze of lemon (optional)
  • 10 ice cubes

Method

  1. Place ground flax seed and orange segments at the bottom of the blender and process until the orange is fully liquidised.
  2. Add all the spinach and a splash of water – just enough to enable the blender to mince the spinach well. Processing spinach in a small amount of liquid ensures that the smoothie will be smooth, without leafy bits of spinach floating in it.
  3. Add banana and peach. Process until smooth.
  4. Season with grated ginger and a dash of lemon juice and finally add the ice cubes and process some more.
  5. Divide between two glasses and enjoy.
