Spinach and Watercress smoothie

I know a lot of people who skip breakfast for reasons that I can sometimes relate to...not hungry, no time, or just simply bored with the habitual bowl of cereal and plain toast. Not too exciting.

Breakfast doesn't have to be exciting. It needs to be fulfilling and give you a kick-start to your busy day ahead. Forget about those protein bars and shake supplements that only fill your body with chemicals and artificial flavours. Here's a smoothie that is not only nutritious but it's also delectable. Blended spinach and watercress may not sound appealing to your taste buds, especially for a smoothie, as you may think it would predominantly taste like greens. Surprisingly, this high-iron and vitamin c smoothie is not only gratifying but is luscious and savory.

Recipe "au pif":
1 cup frozen chopped spinach
1 cup frozen chopped watercress
1/2 cup vanilla-flavoured yogurt
2 1/2 cups sweetened soy milk (Natura)
2 tbsp lemon juice
1 tbsp liquid honey
Mix all ingredients in blender until velvety

Now you can enjoy your plain toast with this great booster.
