Green Nutrient Boosting Smoothie

The green smoothie is a quick way to get your vitamins and minerals each morning without having to chew through mountains of greens.  

This recipe uses watercress, spinach, and celery for maximum nutrient density (including folate, vitamins A, C, E, and K1, calcium, copper, iron, magnesium, manganese, and potassium).  

Apple adds some sweetness to balance the flavour profile.  Almond milk provides vitamins D and E,  calcium, and a range of other minerals.  

Feel free to personalise the recipe to suit your taste by adding your favourite greens,  fruits, or whatever else the fridge has on offer.
