This smoothie is a great way to increase your antioxidants and to make sure you get a healthy serving of greens every day. I feel clean when I drink this and it makes me feel like I’m doing something really nice for my body.
- 1 tbsp hemp hearts
- 1 tbsp chia seeds
- ½ cup frozen kale
- 1 cup frozen blueberries
- 1 cup water
- 1 small fresh or frozen banana
- 1 scoop of protein powder (I like Sun Warrior, vanilla)
- Place all ingredients in the blender (I measure the water first using the measurements on the blender and then place everything else in). Blend on high for a minute or so. You can add ice if you want it thicker and colder.
- Transfer to a large drinking glass, enjoy!
Cooks’ Tip: To make things a little faster in the mornings, I prepare single serving grab bags all at once. I portion 1 cup blueberries, ½ cup kale and 1 banana cut in pieces in each bag then and freeze the individual bags. In the morning all I have to do is fill the blender with the 1 cup liquid, dump in the contents of the grab bag and scoop the dry ingredients into the blender.
