This is a preview only. Sign Up for Yeotown Life Now

A healthy nourishing green smoothie recipe introduced to the NOW OPEN Yeotown Kitchen in Chiltern Street, Marylebone.

 

Makes 2-3 servings

Ingredients

1x banana, partially frozen for 2 hours min

1x peeled, prepared avocado, partially frozen for 2 hours min

1 cup milk of your choice – we use hemp milk

2x dates, pitted

2x tsp cacao nibs

Mint leaves to taste (we used about 10)

1x handful spinach leaves

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

A few ice cubes

Squeeze of lemon juice

 

Method

You will need a high-powered blender (able to withstand “crunchy bits”) to make this smoothie.

Add all ingredients to your blender.

Once blended, try the mixture and add ingredients according to your preferred taste. Julia likes to add a squeeze of lemon juice to enhance the flavours of the smoothie.

If you like your smoothie to be a little less thick (again, this is entirely based on your preference), add a splash more milk or water.

Blend and serve immediately. Garnish with more mint leaves and cacao nibs.

About Julia Waghorn

At 6 years old Julia won a school prize and asked for a recipe book and by 10 years old she wanted to be a cook; so Julia’s interest in food goes back a very long way. In a time when British food had an appalling reputation, cooking for a living was only done by people who couldn’t do anything else, Julia went to catering college to study hotel management but as soon as she could, she got back into the kitchen. Julia went to Ullapool on the west coast of Scotland for a holiday job and stayed 9 years working in various hotels, enjoying the great outdoors and cooking with the superb fresh produce available. She went on to spent some time in London where she owned a Deli and wholesale organic bakery. The business evolved into function catering and working as a private chef including 2 years cooking for a vegan. Julia has always been interested in accommodating special diets in a way that allows everyone at the table to eat the same food. Julia then came to Devon in 2002 to run a B&B but got found out and ended up doing cooking for various enterprises and events and joined the team at Yeotown in 2010. She now lives on the coast at Lee with her husband Peter and lunatic Jack Russell, Millie, and apart from the inevitable cooking her interests are gardening, reading, upholstery and putting her crumbling Georgian house back together.
