Morning Green Smoothie Recipe
For years now, I’ve started my day with a green juice or smoothie. With a serving of fruits and vegetables already consumed, it really gives me a head start and sets the tone for my day in a mindful way.
My morning green smoothie provides a refreshing boost of energy that wakes up my digestive system and fuels my body with vitamins and nutrients, and it makes me feel good that I’ve done something good for myself.
Blending a Balanced Green Smoothie
If you’re new to green smoothies, you’ll love this Kale Grape Mint Smoothie recipe my friend Tess, The Blender Girl, developed for us. The grapes and lime juice do a great job of “hiding” the kale flavor, while the subtle avocado adds a decadent creamy texture. This recipe will keep you feeling full and satisfied, with a bit of protein, a good dose of healthy fat, tons of fiber, and natural sugar carbohydrates.
We all know kale is a superfood. It enjoyed the spotlight for a long time, along with friends like acai, celery, cauliflower and avocado. One cup of fresh chopped kale is packed with polyphenol antiodixants, 200% of your daily value in vitamin A, over 100% of your daily vitamin C, and almost 700% daily value of vitamin K.
