I have been really into smoothies and ‘nice cream’ lately. As the weather gets warmer and my spin classes get hotter, the refreshing cold of a berry smoothie or chocolate banana ‘nice cream’ is just so appealing. I haven’t fallen in love with the green smoothie trend YET, but you all know I love my kale.
I was asked a few times for my green smoothie recipe from this post, so as a treat for your Saturday morning, here it is! Now, I love getting my greens in the form of a salad… or on top of a pizza crust covered in gooey cheese, but I suppose if you’re going to be all hipster and healthy, a green smoothie will do.
Kale Pear Smoothie
1 cup kale leaves
1 cup spinach
1 frozen banana
1 ripe pear
1 cup unsweetened soy milk
1 scoop plant-based vanilla protein powder
(Vega vanilla protein & greens OR Dailyburn fuel-6 vanilla)
3-4 ice cubes
BLEND. INSTAGRAM IT. DRINK.
Enjoy feeling like a Goddess with those green vitamins and minerals coarsing through your veins. Smoothies are a great meal replacement on the go or on a warm day. After spin class or any workout I like something that is easy on my stomach and gives me a great dose of carbs and protein to refuel.
If you are a local reader I highly encourage you to attend the Const. David Wynn Memorial Hockey Game tonight (April 17) at Servus Place in St. Albert, AB! The RCMP are taking on Edmonton Oilers Alumni in an exciting hockey game. Admission is free but donations will be going to the Wynn and Bond families. See you there!
Do you ever buy smoothies or always make your own?
