Notes

Adding nuts to your smoothie is a great way to add additional fibre, protein and fat, helping you stay fuller longer. This recipe was been written for the Vitamix C-Series machines (with Variable Speed control and Standard 2.0-litre container). If you are using a different Vitamix or blender, you may need to make adjustments to the speed, processing time, and/or ingredient quantities. This flavoursome smoothie is naturally fruity, sweet and spicy, and the addition of fizzy kombucha brings a beautiful dose of probiotics.
