This week, I decided to take advantage of my kids’ enthusiasm for our morning smoothies and Go Green. I am always looking for yummy ways to get some green veggies in them – why not smoothies? And it worked! After eyeing the blender with a great deal of suspicion, they gave it a try and actually liked it. My littlest even came back for seconds.
Aside from being a huge success with the younger crowd, smoothies are also a super simple and easy way to fuel up in the morning. Whether it is the fiber in kale, protein in greek yogurt or the antioxidants in berries, all provide a nourishing (and filling) way to start your day.
1 ripe avocado
1 cup shredded kale, fairly well packed
1 cup ice (about 5 cubes)
1 cup coconut water
1 tablespoon finely chopped peeled fresh ginger
2 tablespoons honey
Juice of 1 lime
Zest of 1 lime
- Combine all ingredients in a blender and mix until smooth.
