[tweetmeme source=”VeganChickie”] Savoy Cabbage is one of the stronger flavoured leafy greens out there so I recommend saving it until you have a bit of green smoothie practice under your belt, you’ll notice that in the recipe below I have replaced my usual creamy ingredient (banana) with avocado, this reduces the sweetness of the smoothie but adds a wonderful creamy texture.

Savoy, Kiwi & Peach Smoothie


2 handfuls of savoy cabbage leaves
1 avocado, peeled and seed removed
1 kiwi fruit, peeled
1 cup pineapple chunks
1 peach, pit removed
1 tbs agave nectar (or other sweetener)
1 tbs chia seeds (optional)
1/2 cup frozen berries (optional)


1. Place your fruit in the blender, add water and blend until smooth, add your ‘greens’ and blend again until smooth. Add your chia seeds and blend until they are mixed through. Serve.

Amounts above will be enough for 2 smoothies.

NOTE: The amount of water you use will depend on how thick you like your smoothie, I just use enough to get the blender going nice and fast, if you like your mixture to be less thick, add more water.
