Kiwi Kale Smoothie

Every time I make a smoothie I think to myself, I should make these more often. But somehow I never get myself into the habit.

Consider this my resolution, because smoothies are incredible and they are SO good for you. It's worth it to put in the extra effort to make sure you're drinking them regularly.

Smoothies are a great way to get in tons of nutrients without having to eat a whole bowl of fruit and veggies. Plus, they're perfect if you don't love the taste of a certain vegetable. Just hide it in with some fruit and you'd never know it's there.

Ingredients

I went for a green theme with this smoothie, so almost all the ingredients are green!

  • Frozen Cauliflower: Frozen cauliflower is a great way to get in some extra veggies, and you can't even taste it!
  • Fresh & Frozen Bananas: Bananas add sweetness. I used two frozen bananas instead of adding ice, and then threw in a third fresh banana for good measure.
  • Kale: Kale is such a nutrient dense vegetable, it's the perfect addition to a healthy smoothie. While you can taste the kale slightly, adding lots of fruit helps keep the smoothie sweet and tasty.
  • Green Apple: Apples are filled with fiber! A green apple also adds sweetness.
  • Cucumber: Cucumber is just like cauliflower in that it adds nutrients but you can't taste it at all! Feel free to leave it out if you don't want to use it.
  • Kiwis: Kiwis are SO good for you and they are super sweet. If you want, you can freeze the kiwis ahead of time to have another frozen element.
  • Walnuts: A bit of fat helps you digest all the fruits and veg. Just a few walnuts can work wonders. Plus, walnuts are a superfood themselves!
  • Ginger: For a bit of tang and freshness.
  • Liquid of choice: You can use any liquid that you want, like non-dairy milk, pineapple juice, or water.

thank you for the oil free recipe. I'm getting introduced to wild Bolete mushrooms here in Colorado, and everyone sautes Bolete's in butter or olive oil. I'm on a veggie, oil free regimen for heart health reasons. and your recipe suggestion may fill the bill. I can't wait to give it a try.
