“Feel the Burn” Green Smoothie

green-smoothie

I just had the best workout and couldn't wait to reward my body with the nutrients it deserved. This smoothie has it all: Leafy greens, protein, antioxidants, everything you need to start your day. Don't be turned off by the green color. It's the color of energy and vitality! Drink up!

INGREDIENTS

  • 2/3 cup coconut milk or unsweetened almond milk
  • 2/3 cup water
  • 1 serving protein powder
  • 1 scoop berry greens
  • 1 tbsp cacao
  • 1 cup frozen organic raspberries
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon
  • 8 drops of liquid stevia
  • 2 huge handfuls of kale (I used lacinato or "dinosaur" kale)*

DIRECTIONS

  1. Place all ingredients in a blender in the order listed (it's easier to blend when you put the greens in last).
  2. Blends until smooth
  3. Serve in your favorite glass and enjoy!

*If you are new to adding greens into your diet, use spinach (it's milder than kale) or use 1 huge handful instead of 2. I love the energy boost that leafy greens provide so I like to start my day with as many raw leafy greens as I can. I recommend you do the same! Adding more leafy greens to your diet will curb your sugar cravings throughout the day too.
