Day 6 Green Smoothie

kale smoothie

Kale Smoothie  used Good_Clean_Health_Green_Smoothie_Formula as a guide for greens use…

Ingredients:

1 sliced banana

½ cup frozen blueberries and blackberries

½ cup or less kale

¼ cup sprouts

1 stalk celery

1 inch ginger

Cinnamon

Cayenne

Sesame seeds

1 tsp raw honey

Coconut milk

Put everything in a blender and blend until smooth and creamy.  Use whatever veggies and fruit you like!

I discovered that kale and anything with seeds need to be VERY WELL BLENDED otherwise your smoothie will feel gritty and will need to be chewed more than a smoothie should.  Also it is important to balance the savory flavors with the sweet, lots of raw ginger and cayenne can make for a strong flavor when you are expecting something kinda sweet and balanced.  Know your taste buds and prepare accordingly.

We can ALL use a bit more raw leafy greens in our diet (the thing that we are missing most in our American diet) and so smoothies can be a great way to get lots of minerals and nutrients into our diet without needing to cook or prepare them.  Smoothies are also a simple way to get a complete meal on the go! Get creative to figure out what you like!
