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
  • iced water (enough to loosen everything up)
  • 1 thumb fresh ginger; peeled and chopped (to taste)


  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!
