When the temperatures outside are high, one of my favorite ways to fuel up and cool down is by making a yummy smoothie. Not only are the blended concoctions deliciously refreshing and packed with natural sugars to satisfy your sweet tooth, but with add-ons like protein powder and chia seeds, the nutrition value is unbeatable. Here’s how to make a mixed berry and kale smoothie, one of my favorites…
Start with 1/2 cup of frozen mixed berries (I used blueberries and strawberries), and about 1/2 cup fresh blueberries. Throw in 10 almonds and 1/4 cup of ice water or almond milk. Blend.
Next throw in 1/2 cup of chopped kale and whichever powders and seeds you prefer. Blend.
Now, pour the contents into a glass and enjoy! By the way, if you are worried that adding greens to your smoothie will make them taste weird, I assure you it won’t! This was a major concern of mine prior to trying it out. But no- you get all of the vitamins and none of the taste!
