Ingredients (serves 2):

•  1 cup frozen raspberries

•  1 frozen banana

•  5-6 large leaves of leafy greens (kale, silver beet or spinach)

•  1/4 small raw beetroot, peeled

•  1/2 cup macadamia nuts, raw

•  2 1/2 cups filtered water

 

1. First, place the macadamia nuts in the bottom of your blender with the filtered water. Let soak for 15 – 30 minutes for the nuts to soften.

2. Add the rest of the ingredients to the blender and pulse on high for 60-90 seconds or until smooth. Add extra water to thin the smoothie if it’s too thick.

*If you’re after a nut free smoothie, you can omit the macadamia nuts or swap these for a tablespoon of tahini instead.
