Woot woot — happy Friday! Earlier this week, I threw together a delicious green smoothie. I posted it on Instagram, and The Real Life RD commented, ”I feel healthier just looking at this.” This smoothie is not only tasty, but is highly nutritious, too, packed with some of the top superfoods: almonds, blueberries, chia seeds, and kale. Wouldn’t you agree, Miss RD? ;)
Almond Blueberry Kale Smoothie
Makes 1 smoothie.
- 3/4 c. unsweetened vanilla almond milk
- 1/2+ frozen banana, cut into chunks
- 1/4 c. frozen blueberries*
- 1+ c. kale
- 1 T creamy almond butter
- 1 T chia seeds
Mix all ingredients in a blender until thick and creamy.
Note: If you do not have frozen fruit, you could use fresh fruit and add ice.
Oh, the almond butter is a must — it makes the smoothie thick, and well, nutty!
