Not many things beat a cold fresh smoothie on a sunny day. I took Grumples for a nice walk this morning because I couldn’t stand to stay inside for one more minute. The weather was absolutely perfect. It was sunny, 70 degrees with a light breeze, the sky was blue with big bold Toy Story clouds, and the grass is bright green. I call that “hydrated” grass. You must take advantage of these days before it gets too hot. After the walk, I came in to make a delicious green smoothie to go with my bowl of oatmeal for breakfast. After a weekend of dining out, healthy food is much needed!
Ingredients: 1/2 cup diced papaya, 1 1/2 cups kale, 1/2 cup ice, 1 1/2 cup unsweetened cashew milk, 1/2 banana, 2 packets stevia, honey, and chia seeds.
Blend all the ingredients on high except the chia seeds and honey. Dip the edges of your glass in honey and coat it with chia seeds. Pour the smoothie into the glass and enjoy!
The smoothie was creamy and had a great consistency. You can’t taste the kale because the fruit takes over the flavors! This would be a great way to get a non-kale lover to eat kale!
