Green Giant

By Andrew Cooper From the book Juiceman
Green Giant Smoothie from Juiceman

This smoothie will make you feel that you have been very good to your body. Full of nutrient-packed fruit and veg, it will give your system a real boost. I do not peel kiwis, as the skin is full of vitamin C and fibre - perfect for smoothies. As this is a meal in a glass, it is a great way to finish your day. 

For how many? 1 large or two smaller glasses


  • 325ml coconut water
  • 1 tsp spirulina
  • 1 tsp maca powder
  • 1 tsp flaxseeds
  • 1 tsp coconut or hemp oil
  • a sprig of parsley
  • a handful of fresh kale
  • 2.5cm piece of fresh root ginger, peeled
  • 2 kiwi fruits
  • a handful of baby spinach leaves
  • 1/2 lemon, peeled
  • 1/2 cucumber, chopped


Wash, peel and chop the ingredients where necessary. Put all the ingredients into a blender in the order they're listed. Blitz until smooth.

Juiceman Tip: Top with coconut flakes and goji berries for an extra immunity boost.

Juiceman Fact: Maca boosts sex drive.
