I often get asked on Instagram and Facebook what’s in my green smoothies and juices I make, so I thought I would share. This is my all time favourite recipe.

What you need:

  • Handful of kale
  • Handful cos lettuce
  • Handful spinach
  • 2 stalks of celery (cut up into bite sizes pieces)
  • 1 small cucumber (cut up into bite sizes pieces)
  • Half lemon (without skin)
  • Half lime (without skin)
  • Ginger (to taste)
  • Teaspoon Synergy Natural Spirulina
  • Filtered water (depends how thick you like it)
  • 1 tablespoon Sunwarrior protein powder
  • A few macadamias
  • Any superfoods you like (eg maca, chia seeds, hemp seeds)
  • Optional (dulse, turmeric, cinnamon, cayenne pepper)

What you do:

  1. Throw everything in the vitamin (or any blender) and blend on high until smooth.

This smoothie is jam packed with vital nutrients and beauty enhancing goodness. You will notice that I don’t add any fruit to my smoothie. That’s because I don’t want any sugar first thing in the morning. I adjust the taste with the lemon and ginger. If its not palatable for you try adding some berries to sweeten.

Spiced Christmas Tea


For those of you who wont be drinking over this festive season a warm spiced Christmas tea is a great alternative.

You can also make this an iced tea but seems though it’s actually cold in Sydney keeping it warm is perfect.

What you need:

  • 500 ml filtered water
  • 5 cm fresh ginger
  • 3 cinnamon sticks
  • 6 cardamom pods
  • 6 cloves
  • 4 cups fruit juice (unsweetened) – I used Organic Anti-Oxidant Force
  • 1⁄2 cup Red Wine or Liquor (optional)
  • 50g walnuts (and/or almonds, pecans, etc)
  • 100g raisins
  • 1 orange (thinly sliced)!

What you do:

1. Boil water, ginger, cinnamon sticks, cardamom pods and cloves for 15 minutes to make a spiced water infusion. Store in the fridge over night.

2. Add the fruit juice (and alcohol if using), boil for 5 minute then simmer for 30 minutes, remove the spices.

3. Add chopped nuts, raisins and orange pieces and serve with or without straining the solid ingredients.

4. The proportion of fruit juice to alcohol can also be altered according to your preference.

5. Tea can be served warm or chilled with ice.

(Makes 1 bottle)

Nutritional notes:

Ginger not only has a beautiful aroma but also helps with nausea, digestive problems (great for the over eaters) circulation and arthritis.

Organic Anti-Oxidant Force Juice is a highly nutritional juice, made from goji berries, acai, blackberries &

more.

Cinnamon is packed with anti-oxidants, it also balances blood sugar levels, perfect in dishes such as this one that contain high levels of sugars (even if they are natural!)

Cloves are known to have one of the highest anti-oxidant level ratings on the ORAC scale.

Almond Milk

I love angels milk (aka almond milk) it’s a perfect dairy alternative. However, many supermarket bought almond milks are loaded with agave and other artificial sweeteners. For the dangers of agave click here. So the best way to insure you get the highest quality is to make it yourself.

It’s really easy and super yummy.

What you need:

  • 2 cups of almonds;
  • 1 coconut; and
  • 1 teaspoon of cinnamon powder.

What you do:

  1. Soak the almonds in filtered water over night.
  2. Drain the almonds and pop them in the blender.
  3. Crack open your coconut and scoop out the flesh, add the water and flesh to the blender.
  4. Add the cinnamon and some filtered water and blend till your desired consistency.

Liver Detox Green Juice


As I don’t drink alcohol I don’t put a lot of stress on my liver and don’t need to detox as much as the average Joe. However this doesn’t mean I stop strengthen my little liver. Grapefruit is one of the best liver building foods!

Try my yummy green smoothie recipe I have each morning.

What you need:

  • 4 cups of fresh grapefruit juice;
  • 1 bunch of coriander;
  • ½ bunch of mint; and
  • 1 or 2 avocados

What you do:

  1. Throw everything in the blender and blend on high.

Easy as that!

To be honest I was a bit hesitant and whilst making it screwed up my face. But oh boy, was it delish!  So yum and super good for you.

Let me know what you think.

Happy blending :)
