A delicious smoothie from leftover fruit and veg

Seeing delicious fruit or veg going to waste is always a shameful sight. Use up some of those aging, over ripe, unwanted ingredients by chucking them into the blender! A simple base of leafy greens (kale/spinach) or salad leaves, some seeds/nuts, spoonful of coconut oil, and couple of extras of your choice and you’ll have yourself a delicious smoothie from leftover fruit and veg! By adding in a bit of coconut oil your body will be able to better absorb the fat soluble vitamins (A, D, E, K) in your smoothie.

Here’s a recipe I made earlier!

9. Throw in the rest of your fruit and veg into the blender (if struggling for space grab a potato masher and squish them down).

10. Attach your blender to the rest of it (this step is important if the bottom of your blender leaks when you add liquid).

11.  Add the XCT oil and water.

12. Mix until the consistency looks smooth.

13. When the shake looks nice and creamy, detach from the blender and pour out as desired.
