“Wake me up before you Coco” energising nectarine green smoothie
Starting the mornings with a green smoothie is an excellent way to be on track for your 5 (or more) a day. By cold brewing green tea in coconut water overnight you gain all the benefits and flavour of the tea, with none of the bitterness and without diluting the taste. Green tea is rich in antioxidants and gives enough of a boost from the caffeine that you can postpone your morning cup of coffee by a couple of hours.
Soaking the cashew nuts makes them soft and creamy, I soak them in batches in filtered water overnight in the fridge, then drain and freeze them.
You will need to start preparing this smoothie the day before, but it is only a minute’s work.
