Green power smoothie

10 minutes
  • 80g frozen sliced banana (see tip)  
  • 125g chopped fresh pineapple  
  • 40g baby spinach  
  • 30g raw cashews  
  • 1 tablespoon fresh mint leaves  
  • ½ cup cold water 
  1. Process all ingredients in a high-powered blender until smooth.  
  2. Pour into a serving glass.  

Tips  

  • For 80g frozen banana, peel and slice 1 small (100g) banana. Place in a container or snap-lock bag and freeze overnight.
