Whether you are a vegan, a raw vegan, or even an omnivore, this raw vegan green smoothie is the perfect start to any day.

Prep time: None
Cook time: 10 minutes

Serves 1

Ingredients

6 frozen raspberries
6 cubes of frozen mango
50g baby spinach leaves
1 banana
20ml water
1 tbsp chia seeds
1 tbsp cashew nuts
2 tbsp desiccated coconut
1 tbsp sunflower seeds

Method

  1. Peel and slice the banana into chunks and place in the bottom of your food processor.
  2. Chop the baby spinach leaves into smaller pieces, and put in with the banana.
  3. Add the frozen mango, and raspberries, and turn on the food processor at full speed.
  4. Once everything is mixed, begin to pour in the water as it continues to pulp the ingredients.
  5. Keep the processor going until you achieve a smooth consistency, with no lumps and a dark green colour.
  6. Pour the mixture into a cereal bowl, and garnish with the cashew nuts, chia seeds, and desiccated coconut. Finish with a sprinkling of sunflower seeds.

This raw vegan green smoothie will get you going after an early start, or a morning workout, and keep you well hydrated and empowered until lunchtime rolls around. A rich source of iron from the spinach, and a good balance of both protein and healthy fats from the nuts and coconut on the top — the mixture has been specifically designed to ensure you cover all necessary nutritional boxes.

It’s a cleansing but filling breakfast substitute for feeling bright and ready to tackle a long day of work. While this can be consumed as a drink, I highly recommend putting the smoothie in a bowl, topping it with some generous crunch and enjoying it by the spoonful. It will make you savour every bit of it a lot more thoroughly and guarantee you are addressing the bite your stomach is craving.
