Based on lots of vegetables and healthy fats, plus a bunch of potent superfoods and a selection of frozen berries, this Yellow Afternoon Vegetable Smoothie was both interesting and delicious!

Equipment

  • Blender

Ingredients

  • 1 avocado (skin and seed removed)
  • 2 carrots
  • 1 golden apple
  • 1/2 cucumber fabio
  • 1/4 fennel
  • 1 leaf kale (remove stem)
  • 5-6 cm leeks
  • 2 handful frozen cauliflower
  • 1-2 handful frozen broccoli
  • 2 tbsp frozen sea buckthorn
  • 3-4 tbsp frozen cranberries
  • 1.5 tbsp extra virgin coconut oil
  • 1 tsp anise (optional)
  • 1 slice lemon (organic, with skin)
  • 1 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1 tsp cardamom powder
  • 1 tsp ginger powder
  • 1/2 tsp Himalayan salt
  • 600-700 ml water

Instructions

  • Wash and prep all the ingredients as indicated.
  • Add everything into the blender and cover with water.
  • Blend everything on medium to high speed until you get the desired texture.
  • Serve fresh or store in the fridge for around 3 days.

Notes

Instead of sea buckthorn berries, you can definitely go with cranberries which are more popular and taste almost the same. Keep in mind that sea buckthorn berries have more vitamin C per serving so they are in fact a bit sour-ish.
Make sure to use an organic lemon, otherwise remove its skin. Conventionally grown lemons (and all other citrus fruits) may be sprayed with pesticides so their skin might contain pesticide residues.
