The ideal remedy for any cyclist looking to give their immune system a boost.
Smoothies are a great way of packing loads of healthy foods into an easy to consume drink and this green machine smoothie is no different.
Packed full of healthy fruit and vegetables such as kiwis, spinach and kale to name a few, performance chef Alan Murchison explains why incorporating these foods into your diet is crucial,
“This is a great recipe for anyone who’s been missing out on veggies. Green vegetables should be eaten in abundance because they contain chlorophyll, which helps cleanse the blood, increases red blood cells and strengthens immunity.”
This recipe can also be halved in size if you require smaller portions.
- 400ml apple juice
- 4 kiwi fruit (skin on)
- 40 white grapes
- 2 bananas
- 2 green apples
- Handful of fresh spinach
- Handful of fresh kale
- Handful of ice cubes
Put all of the ingredients into a blender and blast on full power for 30-45 seconds, according to how smooth you like the consistency of your smoothie.
