Starting today through the end of March, we’re bringing you super GREEN recipes in honor of St. Patrick’s Day.
Today, we are kicking it off with a yummy green smoothie recipe that will be an awesome change of pace if you’re tired of the same old, same old smoothies.
The recipe combines kale and a frozen banana with ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, and chia seeds for a spiced flavor whipped together with almond milk.
You may not believe this, but this green smoothie is a far better source of calcium than a tall glass of cow’s milk! Almond milk – as long as it is calcium fortified – is a top vegan source of calcium, and kale is high in calcium as well. Together, they’ll deliver 60% of your recommended daily value of calcium in one tasty drink.
For more on this, watch for my blog post on Thursday: The Best Ways to Prevent Osteoporosis (Not What You Think)!
Until then, mix up your morning routine with this delicious smoothie and stay green!
Give it a try and let me know what you think over on Facebook.
