I’ve written smoothie recipes before for you guys, but the truth is smoothies are one of those foods I just throw into the blender when I don’t have the energy to make anything else. I find what I have lying around, try to balance the veggies and the fruits, and off I go.
I almost always add ginger and lemon because why not, and I love my smoothies on the earthy side, so if you don’t, add spinach instead of kale, or more berries, etc. I love using avocado as the base for my smoothies because it just is so creamy and amazing, and it cuts down on the dairy (which doesn’t always settle right in my stomach!)
Serves: 2 medium smoothies
1/2 cup orange juice
1/2 cup yogurt
1/2 lemon, juiced
8-10 medium strawberries, sliced
1/4 cup blueberries (like two handfuls)
4 kale leaves, chopped
1. Add your orange juice, yogurt, lemon juice, and avocado to a blender. Mix well.
2. Add in your strawberries, blueberries, and kale, and mix until smoothie.
3. Add in fresh ginger to taste – I grate mine with a microplane fresh from the freezer!
4. Serve immediately, or put in the fridge for up to two days and drink for a snack or breakfast!
