Here is my signature green smoothie recipe, with the addition of Further Food Premium Marine Collagen. A great balanced smoothie packed with nutrient from lots of greens, plus some tasty fruits too. The lemon and ginger give this smoothie a refreshing taste, and the added collagen really amps up the protein!
