Green Energy Smoothie


  • 120 grams spinach
  • 100 grams cucumber roughly chopped
  • 300 grams oat milk unsweetened
  • 2 frozen bananas roughly chopped
  • 1 small lemon zest & juice
  • 8 ice cubes


  • Place all the ingredients, apart from the ice, into a blender and blend on a high setting until combined.
  • Add the ice cubes and blend until the ice has been incorporated, creating a smooth velvety finish to the smoothie.
  • This is best served straight away. It can be stored in the fridge for 2-3 hours, ‘though it might need a stir before drinking.


Tips: Freezing the banana isn’t essential but it helps create a nice ‘thickness’ to the drink. Peel and chop them before freezing. Want to increase the nutritional load? Try adding 1 tbsp of chlorella powder (a blue-green algae high in protein and packed full of immune boosting vitamins and minerals).
CNM recommends the use of organic produce.
