I've been using this smoothie recipe for about a year now - although it tends to vary day to day depending on the ingredients I have in my fridge, but I love the way it tastes and the way it makes my body feel. The fact that this is a smoothie, as opposed to a juice, is great as it allows you to keep the whole fruit and veg. Kale is one of the most powerful foods and this is a great way to incorporate it into your diet in way that tastes good and doesn't require you to cook it.

- Frozen berries
- Frozen banana
- Coconut water
All these ingredients are very high in antioxidants, vitamins and essential nutrients making this smoothie very detoxifying. These ingredients also contain anti inflammatory properties which make them excellent for problematic skin types, helping to heal, calm and prevent breakouts.
I'm currently using the Magimix "Le Blender" but I used the Nutri Bullet when I lived in New York which works really well, and is affordably priced compared to most other blenders.
For those of you who might be wondering if I'm still juicing, I haven't bought a juicer yet since moving to London so I've just been making smoothies. Juicers are amazing however, if you're able to purchase both, I'd definitely go for both of them! If you could only by one, I'd say to go for a blender as it's more versatile than a juicer, yet you can still create some amazing healthy drinks.
Do you guys make smoothies or juices? If so, what recipes do you like to follow, or what are some of the ingredients you swear by? Let me know in the comments! XOXO
