Green Smoothie Recipe for Winter

In the winter time when it's cold and frosty you can create gorgeous warming smoothies that really hit the spot. Try adding ginger and lime to your favourite green smoothies to give them some extra zing.

Tip: To warm your smoothie slightly let you blender run for longer usually. Its blades will get hot with the friction and warm your smoothie. The higher the power of your blender the quicker this happens. My currant blender is 600w, and I leave it running for a couple of minutes to create a warm smoothie. Be careful not to leave it too long, or you risk both cooking the food, and blowing up your blender!

  1. Juice the oranges, and add the juice to the blender.
