Surfing takes a lot of energy out of you, especially if you have no fuel in the tank to begin with. Here is a simple delicious and easy way to get in extra vitamins, minerals and antioxidants with a healthy dose of dietary fibre and electrolytes. Suggested and invented by Dietitian Lorna Garden from HippyLuxe Food, this green smoothie will have your fuel tank filled pre-surf.
Add some extra apple or pear for a longer burst of energy.
