A Kale Berry Smoothie for Breakfast or Anytime


Smoothie Kale Berry
I just became a fan of smoothies for breakfast. Why? My daughter was home for the weekend and usually she just drinks coffee for breakfast — which makes me wince secretly, or, truth be told, not so secretly.

But this weekend, in addition to her coffee, she had a healthy smoothie for breakfast — and even though it wasn’t very sweet, she liked it!

To make her smoothies, I basically followed the recipe in the most recent issue of Nutrition Action and added just one or two more ingredients.

INGREDIENTS

1 cup Earthbound Farm Organic Kickstart, in the Kale Berry flavor (found in freezer section)
3/4 cup of milk (2% or whole milk)
1 – 2 teaspoons of black raspberry powder (optional)
1/4 cup ricotta cheese, part-skim or whole milk (optional)

STEPS

Just whiz all the ingredients in a high speed blender until it’s creamy.  Add more milk if needed.

NOTES
The Earthbound Farm product is quite expensive. You can easily cut the cost by buying a bag of each of the ingredients: frozen organic blueberries, strawberries, and kale!

Enjoy and be healthy!
