One of my favorite healthy treats is a green smoothie. This is my go-to recipe when I’m too tired in the a.m. to come up with something creative. It’s super easy to make and tastes really great. Plus, at just 36 calories, one cup of kale offers 5 grams of fiber, and 15% of the daily requirement of calcium and vitamin B6 (pyridoxine), 40% of magnesium, 180% of vitamin A, 200% of vitamin C, and 1,020% of vitamin K. It is also a good source of minerals copper, potassium, iron, manganese, and phosphoru. Kale also contains carotenoids and flavonoids – antioxidants associated with many of the anti-cancer health benefits. Nice!
To make this mega smoothie, just take two giant handfuls of kale, one banana, one cup almond milk and about a tablespoon of ground flax seeds and throw them into a blender.
Then mix until the kale is liquified. Then add about 3-4 ice cubes and blend again.
Pour your drink in the most fun glass you can find and enjoy!
