A Delicious Green Smoothie Recipe and other Healthy Recipes


A super green smoothie recipe plus lots of other healthy recipes to kick start a healthy new year!

Juices are so 2015, don’t you think? It’s all about the smoothie now, you can pack so much more into a smoothie, keeping all the goodness of the fibre plus adding a few extra goodies such as nuts, super food powders and more. Plus you don’t need a space wasting juicer, most people have a blender of some type to whizz up a quick breakfast, or snack for any time of the day. Smoothies are also a great way to get the whole family eating more fruit and vegetables.

What do you think? How do you boost your family’s intake of healthy food?

I personally find spinach easier to ‘hide’ in a smoothie than kale when making them for children but use whichever greens you have, it’s good to mix them up!

Green smoothie recipe…


  • A large handful of spinach (or other greens)
  • 1 banana peeled
  • 1 apple cored
  • Handful of strawberries or blueberries
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 tsp chopped dates (optional)
  • 300ml water (or your favourite milk- almond is lovely and makes it very creamy)


  • Put the ingredients into a blender in the order written above, so greens first, liquid last, and blend until smooth.
  • Enjoy!

  1. I am a bit behind the time. ha! I have only just got a juicer so I am enjoying trying lots of recipes out. You can’t beat smoothies though, I love them! Need to try this one 🙂 I have never tried almond milk either, I like the sound of it. I need to go and look for some.

    Thanks for hosting, I have lots of new smoothie recipes planned so I will hop back when I have posted them..

    • Ha, it was said in jest…I’m not a huge fan of juices made with fruit and I even make my smoothies with paprika in weirdly! Looking forward to seeing your other recipes. x

So You Know...

As you've likely heard and seen, there's an increasing focus on the authenticity of follower growth and engagement on social platforms across the Influencer Marketing community. The platforms themselves have taken measures to deter inauthentic activity and brands now more closely scrutinise the audiences of the influencers with whom they are partnering.

The Flea Network has implemented a system that will detect abnormal spikes in following and engagement, and flag these properties. Of course, such spikes can often be attributed to viral posts or high-profile brands that bring greater exposure to some content.

If one of your social accounts is flagged by our system without an obvious reason, we may reach out to you for assistance in understanding it. If we find any influencer has artificially inflated their audience size or engagement using paid acquisition or automated, third-party tools, we will remove them permanently from our influencer community.

Feel free to reach out to us at bloggers@fleaenterprises.com with any questions or comments.

Thank you!
