3 Minute Superfood Smoothie Health Connections Superfood Leafy Green Mix

5th August 2017

These days life seems to more hectic than usual for me, hence my 3 minute green smoothie which nourishes me most mornings without too much fuss.

Just as the 3 minute smoothie I am keeping my post short & sweet.

I have recently fallen head over heels for Health Connections Superfood Green Leafy Powder, it is well priced and easy to get hold of from most supermarkets, but most importantly it has exceptionally nutrient dense ingredients which will add a significant punch to your daily nutrient consumption.

This smoothie isn’t ‘heavy’, and therefore just perfect to drink before your yoga, gym etc.

Here goes

  • 2 oranges – one juiced and the other one peeled and quartered
  • 1 banana
  • two heaped tablespoons of Health Connections Superfood Green Leafy Mix – buy it here from Faithful to Nature

Throw all the above in your nutri-bullet or blender and drink in the car if need be 😉  

Pssst……click here and visit our Faithful To Nature collaboration store on the Secret Supper Club page to purchase your very own Nutri Bullet at a fabulous little discount)

Until next time and always in dedication to your best health,

We know how fabulously healthy Green Smoothies are.  We all need the greens, fiber, good fats and nutrients.

One of the reasons I love a green smoothie for breakfast is that it’s actually super quick and easy to make and digests easily, so it doesn’t hinder the all important cleansing/ house cleaning time that our body needs and delivers an exceptional punch of nutrients.

I recently came across this very well researched and comprehensive article about Green Smoothies that I feel compelled to share here.
