"Chocked full of iron" smoothie

“Chocked full of iron” smoothie

I’ve not been too well lately and I’m beginning to wonder if my lack of land-animal-eating is causing me some grief. My GP did write me up for some blood tests to check my iron levels a while back but I’ve been neglectful and not had them done yet………shame on me.

When I first went off the red and white stuff I was eating a lot of lentils, beans and tofu and was feeling great. The last couple of weeks though my diet’s been a little ho hum and I’m fairly confident that I’m now paying the price for my neglect.  In an attempt to rectify some wrongs I did a little research to see what I could throw into a smoothie to get a good iron hit, my result – a delicious green “Chocked full of iron” smoothie. I hope you enjoy!

    Hi Susan,
    Thanx for the smoothie recipe. I wonder do you ever eat kiwi fruit with skin in?! I’ve learnt to do it and find it ok as long as I slice it up. The skin may not go so well in a smoothie though!?

      HI Lisa! Thanks for the comment 🙂 I always eat kiwi fruit with the skin on – always take it off for my smoothies though – my little ladies (my chickens) love to eat it. Thanks for stopping by, take care of you xo
