Apple and Greens Super Smoothie is the perfect way to start your excellent gluten-free vegan morning. Also really fab as a post exercise snack or mid-morning/ afternoon pick-me-up! This fresh smoothie is easy, tasty, gluten-free, vegan, nutritious and delicious.
Almonds and banana add great flavour and texture and the colour and flavour from the greens (cabbage!) is amazing. Apples give flavour and a little bit of acidity. Cabbage is full of great nutrients including calcium. The fruity lemon zing adds even more vitamin C, is refreshing and lifts your mood. Apple And Greens Super Smoothie looks and tastes fantastic.
Smoothies aren’t just a great start to a day they also make a wonderful post exercise boost. Want a different smoothie everyday?

Top Tips – Apple and Greens Super Smoothie
It would be ideal if you can leave this in the fridge overnight before making. Otherwise soaking for a minimum of 40 minutes works well.
I used savoy cabbage in this recipe but you can use whatever greens are in season where you are, spring cabbage, savoy cabbage and kale all work well. The greener, the better!
All plant milks work really well here – soya, almond, hemp… All delicious! Just make sure the plant milk you choose works with any allergies or intolerances.
Gluten-free oats, plant milk and nuts are some of my core store cupboard essentials. I eat both several times a week. They are versatile and delicious ingredients. I would be lost without them!
