This delicious green smoothie was inspired by a recipe I'd seen in Little Bird Goodness by Megan May. Having just a few weeks left in my final trimester with baby number two, and a busy toddler in tow, means I'm often craving delicious and nutrient-dense foods that are simple and quick to prepare and this smoothie ticks all of the boxes.
It makes a great breakfast or snack and is perfect for little people to enjoy also. We've taken to calling it "Green Dinosaur Juice" for any fellow Peppa Pig fans out there!
