[mk_padding_divider size=”20″]


  • A big handful of kale – about 2 cups roughly chopped
  • 1/2 cup yoghurt (we use krema)
  • 1 medium beetroot
  • 1 medium carrot
  • 1/2 avocado
  • 1/2 to 1 cup fruit – frozen berries or fresh fruit.
  • 1 banana
  • 3 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 egg (optional)


  1. Combine all ingredients in a blender.
  2. Top up with a liquid of your choice – juice, milk, even water, till the fluid comes to 2/3 full in the blender.
  3. Pulse in a combination of short and long bursts till smooth and uniform.

Cook’s tip

If you have a powerful blender most ingredients can go in whole, older blenders will be helped by roughly chopping the ingredients.
