Wake-up Green Smoothie

After a very restless sleep and a depressing Election Day morning, I needed a breakfast that would slap me around the taste buds and get me out of bed. I dragged myself to the supermarket and bought ingredients for a smoothie that couldn’t be any greener.


It all starts with the kiwi.

This smoothie is very refreshing but may be a little on the tangy side for some. To make it sweeter and/or creamier, simply add in banana, avocado and/or more vegan yoghurt!


If this isn’t art, I don’t know what is.


  • 1 kiwi
  • 1-2 handfuls of spinach
  • 1 pear
  • 1/2 tspb ginger
  • 1/4 cucumber
  • 1 tbsp flax
  • Splash of orange juice
  • Squeeze of 1/4 lime
  • 100ml Green Tea-infused water
  • Optional toppings: chopped kiwi, cucumber, chia, mint.


  1. Combine ingredients and blend until as smooth as possible.
