Ingredients
Method
  • 4 stems Broccolini®
  • 3 Qukes® Baby Cucumbers
  • 1 cup chilled coconut water
  • 1 granny smith apple, quartered, cored
  • 1 handful (20g) baby spinach
  • 6 mint leaves
  1. Wash Broccolini® and put into a snap lock bag. Microwave for 60 seconds on High/100% power (see tip). Plunge into a bowl of iced cold water. Drain, roughly chop.
  2. Pour the coconut water into blender, add broccolini and remaining ingredients. Blend on high speed until smooth. Pour into glasses or jars and serve.
Tip: blanching Broccolini® gives a brighter colour and sweeter flavour. Blanch a few bunches at a time and keep in the fridge all week to make daily smoothie. Variations:  Add 2cm piece peeled, chopped fresh ginger; or 2 tsp honey; 1 stick celery; 1 small banana
