The “So Fresh” Green Smoothie




1 small head of cos lettuce (well washed)
1 small lebanese cucumber
1 pear, seeded with skin on
2-3 ripe bananas
Juice of half a lemon
1.5 cups of water or coconut water


Blend ingredients together until super smooth.

This is hands down Bo’s favourite green smoothie so far… She drank an entire cup (and ate the garnishes) and asked for more. For me it was a bit like drinking salad… which I’m sure I’ll appreciate more on a hot summer day… they are just around the corner after all.

    Eszter - I think I was looking at your green drink sometime last week I think… Green and blue is a tricky color for me when it comes to beverages… But I wanted to show more open-mindedness so I took the courage and actually read the ingredients to today’s drink. I have to say I am impressed! It sound divine! I would taste it without hesitating!

    sarah - Hi Sash, can I be a mega pain and ask what blender/juicer you have. I’m looking to get one but just don’t know where to start. Some are CRAZY expensive! But I don’t mind if it is worth it and I’ll use every day and not a total b*tch to clean!!!
    Thanks, Sarah xReplyCancel

      Sash - Hey Sarah 🙂 I sent you an email reply cos it was long winded. But basically I just use a Sunbeam regular old blender. It has an ice crushing function… I think it cost $50… 🙂 Nothing fancy at all. It’s brilliant.ReplyCancel

    Bella Mills @ Sea and Salt - Hey Sash, I’m loving this series, keep them coming! I love how they’re toddler-tested and you are honest with your reviews of the flavour combinations. Drinking salad… I’m totally down with that!
