Just a quick recipe today: I’m new to this whole “smoothie for breakfast” thing but this one turned out pretty good so I decided to share it with you. I have some bad experiences with smoothies as we attempted a 1 day juice cleanse last month, which basically means you get nothing but smoothies all day. And not the nice and sweet smoothies, no: the horrible vegetable/ginger/celery type smoothies. Yuk.
But I decided to give it a go and create a recipe to provide myself with vitamins and enough energy for a gym-session. Mission succeeded!
By the way: the day this recipe uploads is my birthday!
Kale/blueberry/raspberry/blood orange smoothie
I always thought that smoothies were easy: just throw in a bunch of veggies and fruits and you’re good to go! Boy, was I wrong. My tip for now is to always add some sort of liquid such as orange juice or water, as it otherwise might turn into an extremely thick juice.
I used frozen fruits, frozen kale and fresh pear and oranges. If you don’t like or can’t find blood oranges, regular ones are fine too.
What I used for 300 ml:
- Kale, 30g
- Blueberries, 30g
- Raspberries, 30g
- Pear, 1 piece not too ripe
- Juice of 2 blood oranges
- Oatmeal, 30g
- Splash of water
What I did:
This is really easy: just throw everything in a blender or food processor and mix until smooth. Squeeze the juice out of 2 blood oranges and add this to the mixture. If you don’t like the consistency of the juice just use some more water or orange juice.
Even though this smoothie has kale in it it’s not gross at all. It’s nice and sweet: perfect way to start the day!
See ya next time, Vivian
