Ingredients

  • Flesh from 1 avocado
  • 2 sweet apples, cored and roughly chopped
  • 1/2 small zucchini, roughly chopped
  • 1/2 cup chopped broccoli florets
  • 1 small knob peeled ginger
  • Roughly 1/4 cup loosely packed parsley
  • 1/2 juiced lime
  • 2 leaves kale
  • 1 cup brewed and cooled green tea
  • 2/3 cup almond milk (or water)
  • 2 tsp chia seeds (optional)

Preparation

*You might like to stop and taste after blending in the lime and lemon, to see if the flavor suits your taste.

  1. Add all ingredients to a high-powered food processor and blend until smooth and combined.
  2. Pour into two jars and stir a teaspoon of chia seeds through each. Allow to sit at least half an hour (though overnight is best) before consuming. This will allow the chia seeds to absorb the liquid.
