When I came home from my spin class today, I was craving one of my basic smoothies. I love to mix greens with fruit in my smoothies because you really don’t taste the greens (not even the raw kale which I used in this smoothie). It’s a simple way to get some greens without fussing! I always add a tablespoon of ground flax seeds and a bit of Stevia to my smoothies too!! I am partial to Whole Foods’ 365 brand of Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk. One cup has only 40 calories and less than 1g of sugar.
BLUEBERRY BANANA KALE SMOOTHIE
1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1 TBSP ground flax seeds
1 serving of Stevia Extract (45 mg)
1/2 cup blueberries
1 generous handful of raw kale (ripped off the stems)
1 cup of ice
Blend all the ingredients in a blender (I use the Vitamix). Divide into 2 glasses. Serve immediately and enjoy!!
