Red fruit, coconut & kale smoothie (4 medium glasses)

YOU WILL NEED:

1 1/2 cups pure coconut water
1 cup frozen red fruit (I used cherries, blackberries, grapes & black currants, but any other combination will also do)
2 handfuls fresh kale, thoroughly washed
1 heaping tablespoon desiccated coconut
6-5 ice cubes.
extra coconut to garnish

HOW TO:

Blend all the ingredients in a blender until smooth. Add the ice cubes and blend again.
Serve in large glasses with extra coconut sprinkled on top.

Carrot, apple, ginger & lemon juice (2 large glasses)

YOU WILL NEED:

3 medium carrots, peeled and cut in large chunks
2 braeburn apples
1 small ginger chuckle (about 3cm)
juice from 1/4 lemon

HOW TO:

Process all the ingredients in a juicer, stir and serve.

Lime, mint & pear infused water

YOU WILL NEED: 

1 1/2 limes, sliced
1 pear, vertically sliced
a handful fresh mint sprigs

HOW TO:

Fill a large jug with filtered water and add the lime and pear slices, arranging them to your liking. Place in the fridge for about half an hour, allowing the water be infused with all the flavours.
