I created this recipe when I was just finishing up my health coaching certification and was introducing my then eleven month old daughter to the world of smoothies. I wanted to create something green with plenty of fiber, that she actually ate. And she did! If you are not yet used to drinking green smoothies, it’s totally okay to omit the kale and replace it with something a bit more palatable like romaine. Romaine is full of nutrition, fiber and is also very hydrating. If a smoothie is too “green” for you, scale back on the lettuce. Your taste buds will change over time.
Ingredients + How To:
1 1/2 cups packed spinach (I used organic girl)
1/2 c. kale
1/4c. 100% juice (I used Odwalla Carrot Juice)
1/2 c. Fresh or frozen antioxidant packed berries (I used frozen Cascadian Farms Raspberries)
1/2 tsp. Ground Flax (can be found at any grocery store. Contains fiber and Omega 3's)
Squeeze of a lemon (lemon juice helps with detoxification)
Place all ingredients in a blender and puree. Add water as needed until you find the right consistency.
Makes 2 large glasses or 4 champagne glass "cocktails"
