Green Giant

Start your day with a healthy and energising green smoothie. Packed with coconut water, kale, kiwi and cucumber, this is a refreshing delight from Juiceman's Andrew Cooper.

From the book 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. 

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.
