Bear Grylls Kick-start Smoothie

I pulled this recipe out of Bear Grylls’ book Your Life - Train for It. It is a quite tasty smoothie, recommended as a breakfast replacement. It’s a great option to drink about an hour before your morning workout.

  • 1 serving
  • 5 minutes
  • 2 minutes



  • 1 banana
  • 1 handful of raw oats
  • 1 handful organic raw kale or spinach
  • 1 whole organic cucumber (with skin on)
  • 1 tsp clean greens powder
  • 1 thumb fresh ginger; peeled and chopped (to taste)
  • iced water (enough to loosen everything up)


  1. Pop all the ingredients into the Vitamix
  2. Turn the Vitamix to the Smoothie setting and hit start, or blend on high for a few minutes.
  3. Enjoy!
