Green Smoothie, Second Attempt

15-11I am hosting a party tomorrow night where I promised green smoothies. I’m generally a fan of all things green. I think kale juice is delicious. What puts me off is texture; this makes supplements hard for me. I don’t want smoothies to be powdery, and I like them to be smooth, not with little bits that get stuck in your teeth!

I experimented and came up with the recipe below. When I do it again, I will forego the Flax and Chia blend, as it was too ‘nutty’ flavored and added a texture I didn’t love. I ended up adding one of my son’s fruit bars because it wasn’t sweet or icy enough for me without it. Next time, I’ll have frozen berries on hand and extra ice instead.

Overall, this provided an easy nutritional punch.

 Shameless plug: I sell the Organic Greens Complex (and many other things) at this address:
