This is a party in your mouth. My favorite sweet breakfast, this gets you stable sugars, kale nutrients, and fiber all in one punch. It tastes like banana ice cream. I cannot emphasize enough how important adding a little vanilla is to your smoothie- it creates a balanced, dessert-like treat. You can add as many toppings as you like, I'd recommend crunchy unsweetened toppings like cacao nibs, buckwheat groats, and goji berries. If you are a sweet-tooth lover, try adding some raw granola or muesli instead.
Perfect for: monday morning breakfasts, post-work refuels, afternoon snacks, and a healthy dessert
Smoothie for 2 (cut ingredients in half for a solo smoothie)
3-4 kale leaves
1/2 cup coconut water (fresh or out of a can)
2 frozen bananas
1/4 cup frozen blueberries
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Optional Toppings: goji berries, granola, buckwheat groats, cacao nibs, dried coconut, fresh berries
Add kale and coconut water into your high-powered blender. Blend well - this is the key to getting your kale all chopped up in your smoothie. Scrape down sides of blender. Add bananas, blueberries, and vanilla. Blend until creamy and smooth. Add toppings and eat IMMEDIATELY.
Balanced breakfast = happy tummies :)
