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.
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.
