Green Giant

by Andrew Cooper from Juiceman

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.

Introduction

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.
