Wellness Day & Superfood Smoothie

Superfood Smoothie Wellness Day

I hope everyone had a Happy Easter and for some, a spring break.  We just got home from a few days at the beach.  I love going to the beach, or traveling in general, but eating clean is often a challenge in doing so.  So, whenever my family returns home from being on the road, we immediately begin detoxing with superfood smoothies and juices.  I am participating in a wonderful wellness day at the beautiful Greenbrier Farms (www.greenbrierfarms.com) in May.  This time of rejuvenation includes a yoga session, tour of the farm, and a superfood smoothie (enters Mega Healthy Mama).  As some of you either don’t live around Greenville or are unable to attend this event, I wanted to share the superfood smoothie recipe with you.  That way you can still gain some benefit from the wellness day.  I have prepared this smoothie at many different events and it is always a hit.  It has become a crowd favorite and should become a staple in your smoothie recipes.  It has frozen organic strawberries and bananas which makes it a very creamy cold smoothie.  Kids usually love this drink and won’t even ask why it’s green.  I look forward to seeing you at Greenbrier Farms if you are able to join us.  If not, please enjoy this yummy and nutritious smoothie with your family.

 

Superfood Smoothie

1/2 frozen banana

1 cup frozen organic strawberries

1 cup fresh spinach – packed

1 cup fresh kale – packed

1 1/2 cups unsweetened almond milk

Add all ingredients into a blender in the order listed.  Blend until creamy.  This recipe makes about 3 cups of smoothie.  If you have leftovers, you can refrigerate the remainder, but I would drink in the same day.
