Turning sweet treats into green smoothies is my favourite thing at the moment! This version has been updated to be that little bit healthier. No added sugars, just delicious fruits, some tahini and I now remove the salt as well. I think green smoothies are a delicious way to really up your nutrient intake whilst retaining all the fibre. I could rave about the benefits of drinking them all day, see my first ever post where I introduce you to their powerful health advantages. You can do all kind of wonderful things with smoothies too, more than just a lovely smooth glass of goodness! I love green smoothie bowls, green ice creams- yes! I often make them thick, adding no water or very little water and popping them in a bowl or a nice glass with some chia pudding in the bottom for extra fats.
So with this yummy smoothie, as with all others, you can omit or reduce the water to make it nice and thick and eat from a bowl.
