Thick & Creamy Green Smoothie

A delicious way to start the day – perfect for warm summer mornings. So easy to whizz up, and packed with veggies, fruit and good fats. Trust me – your kids will have no idea there’s zucchini in this. And even when you tell them – it makes the smoothie so deliciously creamy they’ll ask for it again!

Makes 2 adult serves of smoothie


  • 400ml almond milk
  • 1/3 cup (50g) raw cashews
  • 1/2 medium avocado
  • 1/2 frozen zucchini (peeled if you prefer)
  • 1 cup cubed frozen mango
  • 1 large frozen banana
  • 100g baby spinach


Add all ingredients to a high powered blender and blend for about a minute, or until smooth. Pour into serving glasses and enjoy!


  • If you like more sweetness, add a Medjool date or two, or a dash of honey.
  • We sometimes add a couple of spoonfuls of Greek yoghurt or milk kefir for some extra protein, probiotics and “tang”.
  • Leftover smoothie can be frozen in ice block moulds as a great cool snack for the kids. Or freeze in ice cube trays ready to thaw slightly and re-blend for a smoothie another day.
