GREEN & RED SMOOTHIE
Serving this beautiful layered smoothie by Birgitta Höglund is a great way to add some colour and innovation to your healthy spread.
Makes 6 - 8 Servings
6 ripe avocados
500 ml coconut milk
50 g baby spinach leaves
100 ml freshly pressed orange juice
120 ml cold pressed coconut oil
300 g blueberries, raspberries or blackberries
A few drops of peppermint oil
Mix all the ingredients for the green layer in a blender.
Put 1/3 of the smoothie into a bowl and mix the rest with the berries and a few drops of peppermint oil.
Pour the red layer in glasses with a slice of kiwi attached to the side. Fill up with the green layer.
This smoothie becomes quite thick, so enjoy it with a spoon.
If you want your smoothie a bit thinner, blend in some coconut water or more orange juice.
