It is getting so hot in North Carolina! It feels like summer, but it was just winter. I’m not complaining – I am pleasantly surprised at how amazing it has been here. I am happily packing away all of my boots and coats and bringing out the shorts and bikinis 🙂 Last night, we even broke out the grill and had a little BBQ.
In the spirit of St. Patty’s day, I thought it would be appropriate to make a “green” smoothie. For those who may be a little scared about incorporating greens into your fruit smoothies, don’t be! The flavor of the fruit completely masks the flavor of any veggies that are added. Not to mention, it’s an added boost of nutrients and a great way to start your morning!
1/4 cup greek yogurt
1/2 frozen banana
1/4 cup raspberries
1/4 cup strawberries
2 T agave
1/4 cup mango (I used a frozen puree, but fresh will work too)
1 small bunch Kale
2 T flax meal
In your blender, add greek yogurt, agave, flax meal, fruit, kale and a small amount of ice (unless you used all frozen fruit). Blend until smooth and enjoy immediately!
