Smoothie Recipe

Now I know that it’s not even April yet, but we have had a few warm days, so there is no turning my brain around.  My brain has fast forwarded to summer and I am counting down the days.  Now here is a smoothie recipe that will help you look like less of a blob fish at the beach.

This is my own special creation that I have hand perfected over the years.  We are going to call it green blast, and it is a smoothie bowl.  It tastes soooo good.  I eat this every single day in the summer.

The smoothie ingredients are:  kale, orange juice, pomegranate juice (optional), frozen mango chunks, yogurt (any type works but low fat Greek yogurt is a healthy option), and fresh mint leaves.  The topping ingredients are: fresh cherries, granola, chia seeds, flax seeds, shaved coconut, pomegranate seeds, and berries.  Any combination of these is good, so don’t worry if you don’t have all the topping ingredients.  If you want an extra boost you can add crushed or powdered vitamins in.

What I do is I start out with a little kale, and everyday I add a little more because you notice it less overtime.  The mint also helps blend the taste of the kale.
