I was reading a summary of a book called 'Green For Life' and the author wrote about green smoothies... smoothies made with bananas and leafy greens. They sounded good so I made my own using silverbeet, parsley and mint from the garden. Here is the recipe that I came up with: (the muesli makes it more of a roughie than a smoothie).  It may seem strange to have leafy greens in smoothies but the tast is awesome!  I have been having this almost every day for the past two weeks.  The fruit and mint give it a delicious sweet flavour.  I have also made this with kale and avocado, hazelnuts and macadamias.

1 ripe banana
2 large silver beet (spinach) leaves
Handful of parsley
4 large mint leaves
2 tbsp (aprox) of fruit and nut muesli
1 heaped tsp of tahini
1 heaped tsp of coconut oil
A small handful of sunflower seeds
Oat milk
Blend all ingredients.
