Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) watermelon cubes (optional, but recommended)
  • 1 to 1 1/2 (250 to 365 mL) cups baby spinach or other leafy green
  • 1 cup (250 mL) coconut water or water
  • 1 large sweet apple (such as Gala or Honeycrisp)
  • 3 tablespoons (45 mL) avocado
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons (15 to 30 mL) fresh lime juice, to taste
  • 5 to 10 large mint leaves, to taste 5 large ice cubes


Directions

1 Freeze the watermelon cubes (if using) overnight or until frozen solid.

2 In a high-speed blender, combine all of the ingredients and blend until smooth. Pour into a glass and toast to green drinks!

Tip: If using water instead of coconut water, you might want to add a bit of liquid sweetener to make up for the lack of sweetness.

Makes one 750mL smoothie.
