Two Smoothies: Green & Chocolate Banana

12 Jul

Green Kale Smoothie:

The trick to green smoothies is having the right proportion of greens to fruits so that it doesn’t taste like liquid grass.  I went through a lot of bad trials and errors before finding a good recipe, but this one is super yummy.

1 frozen banana (I usually unpeel it, slice it and freeze the slides on a cutting board with parchment paper)
5-6 frozen grapes (I used green)
1/2 a kiwi
LARGE handful of chopped, washed kale
a little water
chia seeds 

Add all to a blender and mix really well.

Makes one large serving.

Chocolate Banana Smoothie:

 1 large banana, frozen
1 Tbsp cocoa powder
1 cup almond milk, original
1 Tbsp each of chia seeds & flax seeds
1/4 tsp vanilla extract

Mix in a blender, makes 1 large serving.
