The Fat Buster Smoothie

Kale has become practically a staple in my morning smoothies. On it’s own it can taste odd, but in a smoothie kale’s bitterness is easy to disguise with seasonal fruits. I have fully embraced the superfood because of it’s endless benefits. To name a few? Kale prevents cancer, boosts energy, & is packed with nutrients [ Vitamin A, folic acid, calcium, Vitamin C, magnesium, & potassium ]. Kale stole my heart- & you’ll agree after you taste this delectable Fat Buster Smoothie.

    Lauren this looks excellent! I use spinach and kale in so many of my morning smoothies, it’s the easiest was to sneak in my veggies first thing in the am and you can never taste them, just the sweetness of the fruit. Great smoothie!

    This looks yummy. I learned at a Vitamix demonstration that the key to making kale and other strong greens palatable in smoothies is the fresh pineapple! Who knew?

    Looks delicious! Do you have something alongside this for breakfast or as a meal in itself?

    I’ve made something very similar, minus yogurt. I do unsweetened vanilla almond milk as my liquid. If i need to add something more sweet I’ll put a teaspoon of agave nectar. I also like to add seeds to mine, for smoothies I’ll do a half teaspoon of hemps seeds and half teaspoon of chia seeds. DELISH.

Kale’s also full of iron, lowers cholesterol, & is high in Vitamins A, C, and K. My favorite thing about kale is that it has more calcium per calorie than milk & more protein per ounce than beef! I blend kale with other veggies and fruits daily and it is perfect in a salad or sautéed with a little olive oil, garlic, and sea salt. For a kale smoothie recipe, click here. [...]
