Morning Drink: Coconut water, Green Leaves and Berries

20130213155600(2)

I love to start the day with a big proper green vegetable juice, but some days I just don’t have the time or the energy.
That’s when the above mixture comes in handy.
It’s also perfect for fussy eaters like one of my kids who is not keen on thick smoothies.

You need one glass of Coconut Water (without added flavourings!) a handful of green leaves and a handful of frozen berries.
Put it in your blender (a hand blender works fine) and you got a super refreshing and healthy morning drink!

I’m obsessed with by trying to get the kids to eat vegetables before they are off to school in the morning and this drink works really well at the moment!

If you got kids who are slightly suspicious of new things you can add a tiny bit of stevia for extra sweetness until they get used to it.

3 tablespoons of green leaves counts as one serving of vegetables and they are a great source of Magnesium.
Magnesium deficiency is very common and drinking coffee has been associated with increased excretion of this important mineral that you really need especially when you are stressed.

Berries are such goodies, beautiful taste and jammed packed with health promoting antioxidants. I keep bags of organic berries in the freezer for when I need them.
