The Hulk Green Pleasure Seeker smoothie – NRG in a gulp!

March 9, 2014

OK so today – Sunday 9th March was amazing. It was as though Summer ’14 had arrived in full glory and for me, the first day of the year that I was able to ditch my cycling bib tights and wear bib shorts again – YES!!! Even better, I had a pair of brand new, just out of the bag Castelli Free Aero bib shorts. I knew that this was going to be the day – man, I was feeling cool!

So we’d planned a day AND evenings biking – nice! I needed a total energy kick after last nights, well, damn cool but totally out of hand (big time) party with friends from London that I hadn’t seen for a while – and this is were my Hulk Green Pleasure Seeker smoothie really kicks in!

It’s brimming with health, energy, sophistication and an explosion of taste. It’s like the super model who parties 24/7, turns everyones heads and glides out of university with that first class honours degree! You get the picture right? This is a kiwi mango layered power smoothie. It’s the choice for breakfast, just before biking or post workout – high in vitamins, antioxidants, fibre and minerals like iron and calcium. It’s seriously going to fuel you and oh my, tastes out of this world!

Ingredients

2 1/2 cups of frozen mango

3/4 cup of organic vanilla fat-free yogurt

1/4 cup of honey

2 tablespoons of Evian / Aqua Panna mineral water

1/2 teaspoon of grated lime rind

3 ripe kiwifruit, peeled

2 cups of ice cubes

2 tablespoons of green tea

1/2 cup of organic baby spinach

 

Here’s how we do it…

Place the mango, 1/2 cup of yogurt, 2 tablespoons of honey, 2 tablespoons of mineral water and lime rind in a blender.

Process until smooth, stirring occasionally. Divide the mango mixture into each of 4 serving glasses.

Place the glasses in freezer.

Rinse the blender container.

Place 1/4 cup of the yogurt, 2 tablespoons of honey, kiwifruit, the 2 ice cubes, green tea and spinach in the blender.

Process until smooth, stirring occasionally.

Gently spoon the mixture onto the mango mixture in the glasses, working carefully around inside of each glass to create a clean horizontal line.

Stir to combine the flavors, if desired and serve immediately.

 

Words cannot do justice to the flavor of this. Needless to say, it’s incredible, silky and rather kind!

Enjoy!
