Green (choc) smoothie to start the day

I have been experimenting with a range of things recently, yesterday I went out to get some spinach but the store didn’t have. I landed up buying bok choy, or as the sticker was labelled “peachay”. I have never used this vegetable before so I had no idea what I was going to do with it.

This morning I woke up and thought I would start my day with a smoothie, a green smoothie, but all I have is bok choy. After googling some recipes this is what I came up with


Here’s the recipe:

1 mango, skinned and pitted,

1 small papaya

2 tbsp cocoa

dash of maple syrup



1 tbsp bee polen

2 tbsp flax seed oil

Whizzz it all up and the picture above is what you will get.

I didn’t plan to add the maple syrup but I needed to hide the bok choy taste and it turned out pretty good.

Curly tops, who I was certain would not drink it had 2 glasses full and still wanted some of mine. Based on that I’d say it’s worth a try 🙂 Why not give it a try, go ahead and start smoothing your way into the day.

**On a side note, bok choy is considered one of those greens that are better eaten slightly cooked, as with all cruciferous veggies. Having them raw occasionally is ok, not regularly. Other cruciferous veggies include Arugula, kale, broccoli.
