Hello January!

Green is the colour of January!!!

But don't worry it does not have to mean tasteless and boring. We love green at Lu-Ma, especially our green smoothie!

So to help you get through the first few days of January and to give you a healthy boost we are giving away the recipe to our green smoothie; Incredible Hulk. This is a delicious smoothie filled with so much goodness to help give you that boost you may need after a busy Christmas period.

It contains Spirulina the ultimate miracle green food! It is the most nutrient dense superfood on the planet, filled with minerals, vitamins, antioxidants, amino acids and calcium, there is not much this plant can't do for you. This amazing plant contains over 60% protein, this is very helpful for those becoming vegan/ vegetarian and looking for alternative sources of protein. Unfortunately it does not have the greatest taste in the world, so we do not recommend taking it on it's own, (unless you hold your nose) but it is perfect in a smoothie.


Add the following to the Vita Mix (or equivalent)

1 banana

6 pieces of frozen mango

1/2 a handful of spinach

1/2 a handful of kale

6 x cahew nuts

1/4 teaspoon of Spirulina powder

Fill the jug with almond milk up to 100ml and blend.
