One positive spinoff of living in a world where Covid is in existence is that it has reminded us to shop local and support Kiwi products whenever we can. But they’ve got to be really delicious, too.

This recipe incudes some amazing Kiwi products worth raving about. I’ve discovered a supplier that delivers avocados straight to your door (Waitaha Avocados). Master picker Gary lovingly cradles them into a courier box. By the way avocados are full of good fats that are helpful for gorgeous, glowing skin – hence the name of this juice. Another NZ-grown product I’m loving is Tahi spirulina. This sustainabl­e food is the darkest spirulina powder I’ve used and tastes so earthy and yum. It brings this green juice, and you, to life (aka a great wholefood pick-me-up).

Green Glow Juice

handful of silverbeet

1 orange (the Burnside Trust in Gisborne grows the sweetest oranges I’ve ever had!)

¼ avocado (I used Waitaha Avocados,

which are Katikati-based)

1 cup coconut water

1 tsp honey (I used 1839 Mānuka

Honey from Tauranga)

1 tsp green spirulina (Tahi spirulina

makes it so dark green)

1 banana, peeled

Place all the ingredient­s in a blender (I use a high-quality Vitamix blender), blend until smooth and then pour it into a glass, or bottle to take on-the-go (to work, school or for a romantic picnic… ) g
