Gorgeous green smoothie (nut free)

green smoothie

This green smoothie is wonderful for those that are sensitive to nuts or want to find a way to get beautiful pumpkin seeds into your diet.

Pumpkin seeds are full of zinc so they’re amazing for our skin, immune system and our tolerance levels (yip this smoothie will make you and your kids happier!!)

Kale packs a wonderful antioxidant punch containing the cancer fighting sulforaphane, so is wonderful for prevention of disease and boosting immunity.   Its also a great green to have in smoothies as it has minimal taste so doesn’t take away from the sweetness of the banana and dates.

  • 1 cup of pumpkin seeds (soaked overnight)
  • 2 frozen bananas
  • 4 organic dates
  • 2 handfuls of kale
  • 4 cups of water
  • Blend and serve
  • Makes 4

Tip: For getting your kids to drink smoothies, get them to help you make it and enthuse how delicious it is.  Add a straw to drink from and they won’t look back

Enjoy

  1. Hi Abby,

    Thanks for yesterdays meeting. Just have a quick question, we soaked chia seeds last night for smoothies and they went jelly like. Is that normal? Also I made GF penne with passata and loads of veg. Is the passata OK? It reads as just tomatoes, but could it have some sneaky gluten? Should I be avoiding it because it’s processed?

    Thanks Jo 🙂

    • Hi Jo
      Yes normal for chia seeds to go like jelly, the gelatinous texture sucks in toxins so its perfect!
      Pasta should be ok, but just check the label and make sure that it doesn’t have sugar, colours or gluten added…sounds like a delicious meal! x x
