  • 4 stems broccolini
  • 1 cup chilled coconut water
  • 1 Granny Smith apple quartered, cored
  • 3 Qukes®
  • 1 handful 20g baby spinach
  • 6 mint leaves


  • Wash broccolini and put into a snap lock bag. Microwave for 60 seconds on High/100% power. Plunge into a bowl of iced cold water. Drain, roughly chop.
  • Pour the coconut water into blender, add broccolini and remaining ingredients. Blend on high speed until smooth. Pour into glasses or jars and serve.


Blanching broccolini gives a brighter colour and sweeter flavour. Blanch a few bunches at a time and keep in the fridge all week to make daily smoothies.
