Hi, I’m Wendy from HillStart Nutrition Health and Wellness and I’m delighted to be able to share my Vegan Dairy-Free Green Smoothie recipe with you at Chez Nermine blog. 
Smoothies are great for those days when you just don’t have time to sit down to a proper breakfast, and this one is guaranteed to keep you full till lunch.
It’s packed with nutrients- dense food such as chia seed, bananas and avocado. Additionally, this smoothie is high in antioxidants and is free from both sugar and dairy – both of which can be inflammatory to the gut lining.
Don’t be fooled by the bright green colour, this is still rather sweet and can be enjoyed by the whole family.
