I love that vibrant green colour of the Melon & Spinach Smoothie. It makes me feel instantaneously happy and I know it makes my body happy too.
I’ve been drinking loads of smoothies lately in an attempt to boost my immune system and this one makes a refreshing change as it has no banana. The texture is similar to juice and feels lighter than the banana based smoothies but is nevertheless delicious and sweet. I usually have it as a mid afternoon snack but it can be enjoy at anytime: it does make a great breakfast.
Spinach will provide a good amount of iron which will be absorbed more easily with the orange thanks to its vitamin C content. Melons are high in water and will keep you hydrated as well as providing some Vitamin C, potassium and vitamin B-6 ( helps regulate mood and sleep). I often add wheatgrass powder to my green smoothies which helps with cleansing and detoxing, but that’s completely optional (it’s on the pricey side!).
