Where is the Green in this ‘Green Smoothie’?

Where is the Green In This Smoothie
Michael is the Smoothie artist in our home. Saturday’s smoothie was SO special that I begged him to remember what he put into it and to write it down. Our smoothies are not only packed with superfoods, yummy fruit, nuts, seeds, healthy oils and loads of greens, they are mostly delicious and please don’t tell him…. occasionally horrific! Let me share Saturday’s smoothie with you.Colour : Kinda bland or slightly chocolatieTaste: Definitely no green detected, slightly sour, I guess that is due to the Vitamin C in the Baobab fruit (what amazing energy), subtle sweet undertones and a great nutty flavour.Consistency: Full bodied but quite pourableQuantity : 2 full litres divided by 3 = 2 full glasses eachNutrition : Overwhelming!!

So here it is…..
