Happy Fiesta Friday, ya’ll! Can’t wait to see what everyone is bringing this week! 🙂
Since my last smoothie post, I have continued to drink some variation of green smoothies almost every day for lunch. I am so proud! But I eat tons of unhealthy foods to make up for it, so don’t start thinking that I’m all healthy and virtuous that way. I love me a good dessert, as you can probably tell by all my dessert recipes.
This smoothie tastes like blended fruits and vegetables. I know many people are afraid of veggies in their drinks and add different ingredients to mask the green leafy flavors, but I don’t mind the taste. For me it’s part of the cleansing process. I don’t need anything extra sugary or creamy with my green smoothie because it rather defeats the purpose for me. This is probably because I have enough sweet and creamy in my diet as it is, so I shy away from any extra. 😉
Triple Berry Green Smoothie
- 2 large kale leaves, torn into small pieces (I also chop up the stems for extra fiber)
- 4 cucumber slices
- 1 cup mixed berries (I use my own frozen blueberries, blackberries, and raspberries)
- 1 tablespoon chia seeds
- 1 tablespoon ground flax seeds
- 8 oz. water (you can substitute milk (dairy or non-dairy) or juice if you prefer)
Blend all ingredients together until smooth. I use my Nutribullet and it does a great job.
