With the right ingredients, it isn't difficult to mask the taste of vegetables in most culinary creations. After all, not everybody particularly enjoys munching on leafy greens straight-up at the crack of dawn.  Stay energized in the morning by slurping on something that is tasty and good for you in equal measure. The secret is to overwhelm the flavour of cruciferous vegetables with a tango of other tastes: chocolate and vanilla protein. Nobody would ever be able to guess that there's spinach in your smoothie bowl. Packed with maca, avocado, spirulina, and protein powder, this chocolate berry smoothie bowl is packed with nutritious surprises.

  • 1 tsp maca

  • 1 1/2 cups of water

For some, green smoothies seem like green monsters. They're daunting and downright unappealing. The odds of you actually enjoying a green smoothie can be ever in your favour when you sweeten it up with a bit of fruit rather than refined sugar. Add the juice of your favourite citrus sphere, add chunks of something sweet and tropical, and you, friend, have a 3 ingredient green smoothie. No fuss or worry necessary. Simple preparation leads to extraordinarily nutritious results.

3 ingredient green smoothie

  • The juice of 6 oranges
  • 1/2 a pineapple, cut into chunks
  • 100g of spinach

Blend and enjoy. Add water if necessary to make the smoothie's consistency less viscous.
