Unbelievably fresh, unbelievably delicious, and rather green: today, we present the detox smoothie.
Spring has come to Zillertal, painting the surroundings of our hotel in Mayrhofen a fresh green. In the garden, the first vegetables are popping up alongside early blooms, and the sun is beckoning us outside. Time for a spring-fresh smoothie that purifies and detoxes to prepare you for the coming summer season. After all: you can never boost your immune system enough. For our green detox smoothie, you’ll need two handfuls of fresh baby spinach, two kiwis, an apple (ideally a sourer variety), half a cucumber, and half a banana, as well as a squeeze of lemon or lime juice and around 250ml of fresh water. Peel the kiwis and bananas, and then thoroughly wash the apple and cucumber, adding them to the blender with the peel on – the peel contains plenty of good vitamins and minerals that we want to benefit from. Blend everything together until it reaches a creamy consistency and serve immediately. The delicious smoothie will serve two people. If you’d like, you can also add a spoonful of wheatgrass.
The chlorophyll from the green leaves has blood-building properties, the spinach provides all-important iron, and the high levels of vitamin C in the fruit give your immune system a boost. At Hotel Neue Post, we place great importance on regional products and healthy recipes – try it for yourself at home!
