I know what you’re thinking, a smoothie with kale and spinach must taste like shit. That was my thought too. As I was making it I was already contemplating throwing it out in fact.
But then something crazy happened. I drank it and I liked it. I repeat, I liked it! I didn’t just tolerate it, it actually tasted good. For the past week Chris and I have been drinking a smoothie every morning for breakfast and it might just be in my head, but I already feel better and feel like some of the Christmas pounds have been shed. Am I claiming that drinking this smoothie will make you skinny (and make your hair grow) as my title implies? No, not at all. That was just a cheap ploy on my part to get you here.
I’m simply saying I feel like I’ve discovered an awesome way to eat the green stuff I normally don’t. And because of it, I have more energy and just all around feel better. Who knew eating healthy actually did that? Crazy stuff.
And no, this isn’t a sponsored post or anything. I’m just so amazed I actually liked this I feel like I must tell the world.
The only downfall is that I’m constantly going to the grocery store to buy more fruits and vegis. Last week I finished two bags of kale and spinach in five days. Now that’s a sentence I never thought I’d say.
So here’s how I go about making this magic smoothie:
I fill my mixer with 50% spinach and kale.
Then add a handful of blueberries.
1/2 of freshly squeezed lemon.
1 tablespoon of raw honey.
1 tablespoon of Chia Seeds.
And then about 1/4 cup of water, give or take.
Give it a try and I promise you’ll be pleasantly surprised.
If you have any other ingredients you add to your smoothies please let me know, I’m all about the juicing right now.
