Although it doesn’t say so on our book cover or blog title, one goal we have had since we started is to make greens sexier. We want to get more people to eat vegetables by showing how beautiful-looking and wonderful-tasting they are. We think this smoothie does just that. Packed with kale and avocado, it still tastes very sweet and fruity and looks rather stunning with its different layers. This can easily be the dessert of a fancy dinner or served as breakfast on a grey Tuesday morning – that’s how versatile and, in fact, simple it is!

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient

For the chia pudding

Quantity Ingredient
250ml Chia pudding

For the kiwi fruit smoothie

Quantity Ingredient
1/4 ripe avocado, stone removed
1 ripe green kiwi fruit
1 frozen banana
1 handful kale or spinach, stems removed
125ml coconut water
1/2 lime, juiced

To serve

Quantity Ingredient
ripe green kiwi fruit, finely sliced and chopped
Nut butter
fresh blueberries
Coconut & buckwheat granola
desiccated coconut
fresh lemon balm leaves

Method

  1. Add the avocado and kiwi fruit flesh to a blender along with the rest of the kiwi fruit smoothie ingredients.
  2. Blend on a high speed until completely smooth.
  3. Spoon half of the chia pudding into the base of two medium-sized glasses (as featured in the photo on page 98). For a beautiful artistic look, you don’t need to worry about making the layers even.
  4. Arrange a few kiwi fruit slices around the inside of the glasses. Cover with half of the kiwi fruit smoothie, the rest of the chia pudding and a dollop of nut butter. Top with the rest of the kiwi fruit smoothie and finish with another dollop of nut butter, as well as some chopped kiwi fruit and blueberries and a sprinkling of granola, coconut and lemon balm.
