Awesome Smoothie Recipes

I wanted to share some Smoothie Recipes that I've found and the taste is almost to good to be good for you.  My first kale smoothie was undrinkable.  
Let's face it, if you can't stand to taste it you're probably not going to drink it, lol.


Hemp Hearts, Blueberries, Chia Seeds, and Spinach are becoming my favorite ingredients.

  1. Love smoothies, these sound delicious! The trick with kale is to add a few leaves without the stems (which are more bitter) and also add lots of sweet fruits like berries and dates to mask the taste if you're not used to it just yet :)

    1. I agree! Kale with pineapple and ginger not only tastes good but is loaded with antioxidants.
