Minty Green Machine

It’s post Christmas, we’ve all over indulged. No matter who you are or what your diet consists of we all feel the excessive eating and drinking pitfalls.

I certainly cannot say no to a chocolate or 20 and my little bod has quite frankly reached it’s breaking point.

So the green machine was born..

I was lucky enough to receive the most delicious Matcha Green Tea from the lovely Alina and the team at TEATOX after meeting them at Food Matters Live and I cannot rave about it enough.

Matcha is the most concentrated form of Green Tea – so yes if you dislike Green Tea this probably sounds like a nightmare – however having tried many other brands (one of which was so bitter even I struggled and I like bitter flavours) TeaTox’s Matcha is so light and believe it or not creamy.

I am IN LOVE. They also do many other delicious Tea infusions (Lydia – I’m looking at you) Check them out.



So I wanted to create a smoothie bowl that not only makes you feel SUPER healthy once consumed, also tastes delicious.

Green Smoothies may not be particularly appealing to some but I assure you this is FAB.


You will need  –

1 Banana

1 handful of spinach

1 Granny Smith

1/4 cup of Flaxseed

1 Teaspoon of good quality Matcha Powder

A few sprigs of fresh mint

1/2 cup of milk of choice – I like Alpro Almond & Coconut


Method –

Throw everything into a high speed bullet blender until smooth!

VOILA – Eat.

I topped mine with Blueberries and some more apple and a touch of Granola.

Let me know your thoughts.


This high powered smoothie is metabolism boosting, rich in antioxidants, Vitamins and nutrients to get you started and feeling super healthy.

The mint is great for the tummy, the matcha will kick start your body into fat burning and the spinach gets in one of your five a day without you even noticing! RESULT!

Who says health needs to be complicated?

I have six months to train for a half marathon so these energy boosters will help massively!
