My typical Friday morning routine was lovingly enhanced by the choice of three new smoothies (are: 'Breakfast Boost', 'Gym Buddy' & 'Clean and Green') available now @penelopes_kitchen.
I was able to sample the very healthy 'Clean and Green' comprising of: Spinach, Kale, Wheatgrass, Pineapple and 100% fresh Orange Juice. They usually say anything good for you has an acquired taste and this smoothie definitely fits the bill. Lovingly made by manager, Marc, this definitely isn't for the faint hearted. However once my tastebuds adapted to the powerful Wheatgrass (it's a Superfood for a reason), I began to appreciate the cacophony of flavours, particularly the complementary aftertaste from the orange and pineapple. After drinking it (slowly) I began to feel more upbeat, however I'm not entirely sure if this was a placebo effect or down to the smugness of knowing I was investing something really healthy and exclusive (possibly a combination of both). Packed with more vitamins and minerals I could note (without boring you), this smoothie would make a great companion for anyone in need of a vitality boost; all for the reasonable price of £3.95 - not bad for a dose of essential, feel good ingredients, made by the ever cheery and accommodating staff (who are great!). Would I try this again, of course, however I may soften the blow with 'Gym Buddy' first 😊🥒🍊🍸
