A spinach melon smoothie will boost your day! The honeydew melon is the sweetener for this green smoothie with frozen spinach and celery.

Spinach is one of the best veggies to use in a green smoothie. Raw frozen spinach chopped or leaves contain many vitamins and minerals!

Make sure you do not buy the creamed frozen spinach for this smoothie.

My spinach melon smoothie has a pretty sweet taste, because the honeydew contains a lot of natural fruit sugars. Celery contains a lot of water, but also some vitamins.
I use celery a lot in my green smoothies to give the main veggie some additional flavour.
Ingredients
  • 1 cup frozen spinach (150 gram)
  • 1 cup honeydew melon (150 gram)
  • 1 stalk celery
  • 1 cup skimmed milk (240 ml)
  • ¾ cup fat free yogurt (180ml)
Instructions
  1. Chop 1 stalk of celery and cut pieces from the honeydew melon. Combine all the ingredients in the blender and blend for 45 seconds.

Our coconut blueberry smoothie is a really fresh fruit smoothie with an amazing color. The mint taste combines perfectly with the fruit flavours.

First you will need to drain the fresh coconut water from the coconut. I always use a head screwdriver and push it through the sofest of the three holes on top of the coconut.

Unfortunately not all coconut will hold the fresh coconut water. In that case you can replace the coconut water with skimmed milk or plain water.

To easily crack the coconut open I put the coconut in my hand palm and tap the coconut alongside the equator on a hard rock.
Alternatively go outside and throw the coconut 8 feet in the air and let it crack open on the pavement.

My banana chunks were also frozen, but that is not a necessity for this coconut blueberry smoothie.
Ingredients
  • ½ cup fresh coconut chunks (150 gram)
  • ½ cup fresh coconut water (120 ml)
  • 1 cup frozen blueberries (150 gram)
  • 1 banana
  • ½ cup skimmed milk (120 ml)
  • ¾ cup fat free yogurt (180 ml)
  • 6 fresh mint leaves
Instructions
  1. Crack the coconut open en extract the fresh coconut chunks. For ½ cup of coconut chunks you will need half a coconut.
  2. peel the banana and toss the banana chunks in your blender with all the other ingredients. Blend for about 45 seconds till smooth.

Coffee smoothie with hazelnuts, banana and pure chocolate is an amazing smoothie for breakfast. I tried all kinds of coffees in the morning, but this coffee smoothie gave me the best coffee break ever.

Why is this the best coffee smoothie ever!? The taste of the coffee perfectly combines with the hazelnuts, chocolate and banana.

Try it, and let us know if this is also your best coffee ever. The hazelnuts are very healthy and according to their nutrition facts they are a real superfood! They contain a massive amount of vitamins and minerals, like vitamin A, C, K, calcium and iron.

I collected my hazelnuts in the woods to save some money. You will need to dry the hazelnuts for two weeks in a warm place in your home before consuming them. Also you can put them in the oven for 50 minutes at 160 Fahrenheit (70 degrees celsius or 345 Kelvin).

Instant coffee from nescafe is my favorite instant coffee, but you can also use your own brand. This is because you can use all instant coffee brands for iced coffee.
Ingredients
  • 4 teaspoons instant coffee (NescafĂ©)
  • 1 cup skimmed milk (240 ml)
  • ¼ cup water (60 ml)
  • 8 ice cubes
  • 8 hazelnuts
  • 1 tablespoon pure chocolate (bar)
  • 2 bananas
Instructions
  1. Crack the hazelnuts and peel the bananas. Toss together with all the ingredients in the blender and blend till smooth for about 45 seconds.
