Since Bear created Bear Juice I’ve been quite excited by it and have addictively been having it most mornings. However, I have been experimenting on my own with great results! I wanted to create my own version of a Green (ish) juice. But one that would also double as a breakfast replacement, otherwise it’s goodness slightly goes to waste when I team it with some carb naughtiness. I’m not anti carbs (I wish) I just know I get drawn to buying naughty things in the morning. After my morning commute from Sunny Surrey into the masses at Waterloo and battle to Mayfair. By this point I’m starving and Pret is my safe haven before work becons.
So I wanted the Green Goddess to do two things. One be good for me. Two stop me spending crazy money EVERYDAY in Pret (at least at breakfast time) and THREE be filling, to make number Two actually work! Ok that’s actually three things. Even better.
So here it is!
Green Goddess Juice
Inside it, a pear! Yum.
Spinach (a good handful)
Kale (a good handful)
Half a frozen banana (cut in chunks before freezing)
Frozen strawberries, blueberries, red berries, blackberries and raspberries
Oats! I pour in a nice little heap
Water. Key ingredient to make it juicy (unless you want to eat it with a spoon!)
Blend! Add more water if needed. Blend again. I like a smooth consistency.
Serve or if you are like me. Lid on. Commute. Get to work. Load up your computer and sip away feeling gorgeously smug at your yummy healthy breakfast. Enjoy.
Tip: if the green colour scares you, add more berries. But remember green is good. Taste it before you dismiss it. You may be surprised!!
