I'm a HUGE fan of smoothies for breakfast. They make me feel energized and ready to start my day. Unlike the feeling I generally get after eating something heavy like cereal or toast with almond butter, smoothies leave me feeling light and refreshed! Here is a recipe for one of my favorite green smoothies...don't be alarmed by the color.
Banana-Kale Protein Smoothie
1-2 frozen bananas
1 1/2 cups of chopped up kale (you can sub the kale with any other green IE: spinach, chard, lettuce etc)
1 heaping TBSP of raw almond butter
1 cup of unsweetened almond milk
*if you like your smoothies on the sweeter side you can add one pitted medjool date to the mix.
Blend everything together in the blender until it is rich and creamy. I use a very high-powered blender called a vita-mix and I HIGHLY recommend making that purchase...it's an incredible investment. Look it up on google.
P.S I like to sprinkle some organic cocoa nibs and low-fat/low-sugar granola on top of my green smoothie for an extra CRUNCH!
Enjoy! By drinking this, you are helping both your hunger and your body!
gratitude and happiness,
