Cape Gooseberry Green Smoothie
Green Smoothies with Cape Gooseberries

Have you ever tried a ‘Green Smoothie’? If not, you’re in for a treat. Although you might be baffled as to why anyone would want to “drink their greens”, especially by adding Kale or Spinach to a fruity drink,  we’re confident you’ll love this refreshing, vitamin-packed drink. It offers a super boost of energy that beats any can of Red Bull or Guarana. Just a few reasons to give it a go:

  • Helps you meet your daily ‘quota’ of fruit and veg
  • Packed full of fibre
  • High in Vitamin C and A
  • Works in the gut to help raise B12 levels
  • Good source of B vitamins – thanks to our berries!


  • 1-2 Oranges, peeled and sliced into quarters
  • 100grams of fresh Horti-Pride Cape Gooseberries
  • 1/2 Cup of washed Spinach (or Kale)
  • 10cm Celery, sliced into small pieces (optional)
  • 1 Cup of Ice Cubes
  • 1/2 Cup of Water


  1. Simply add all ingredients, including the ice, into a high-speed blender and puree on high until smooth. We recommend blending for at least 1 minute. Less powerful blenders may require 2 minutes.
  2. Enjoy!


  • Frozen Cape Gooseberries can be used in this recipe, which will offer a slushy-style smoothie that is especially satisfying.
