So…I’m human. I may or may not have eaten approximately one billion chocolate eggs on Sunday. It’s the shiny foil, the pastel colors…the candy shells…the chocolate…the chocolate with peanut butter inside…anyway.
In life, chocolate eggs happen. The trick is to accept, and move on.
So, this morning I made a delicious kale smoothie for some effective purification of my body and mind. I always feel better physically and emotionally when I’m eating lots of green things. This kale smoothie was the perfect start to the rest of my life, sans chocolate eggs.
Chocolate Egg Detox Smoothie
(No, there are NOT chocolate eggs in this smoothie…although…)
2 cups kale, steamed
1 cup unsweetened So-Delicious Coconut Milk
1 Tbsp almond butter (I used Justin’s Classic…so good!)
1 Tbsp chia seeds
Sprinkle of hemp protein powder
Heavy handed sprinkle of unsweetened, shredded coconut
- De-stem your kale and place in a bowl of water in the microwave for 1 minute. Steaming the kale softens it up and releases some valuable nutrients!
- Put the kale, banana, coconut milk, almond butter, etc in the blender with the ice on top. The ice weighs everything down so that you get a nice, smooth, smoothie.
