Spicy Texas Green Smoothie (So Easy, So Good)

Ever added an apple to your GS and had it separate into layers? If this has been your experience try adding a banana and blueberries. The result will be a thick and creamy GS because both banana and blueberries have soluble fibre.

Insoluble fibre passes through our intestines largely intact - while soluble fibre prolongs stomach emptying time and may affect blood sugar levels as sugar is released and absorbed more slowly.

And this combination of arugula and ginger added a spicy earthy flavour that I very much enjoy.

Handful blueberries
1 Tbsp fresh Organic ginger, grated

  • Blend all ingredients together until smooth and creamy
  • At home I use a Vitamix, but here I'm using a Nutri Bullet
  • After tasting I decided to add some ginger and blueberries at the end
