Chocolate Egg Detox Smoothie

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.

For me, moving on means increasing my intake of leafy green vegetables by a googolplex percent.

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…)

Ingredients:

2 cups kale, steamed

1/2 banana

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

Ice

There are three steps involved in making this smoothie.

  1. 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!
  2. 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.
  3. BLEND!

Enjoy!

    I’m sold to this smoothie. I’m always looking for different recovery shakes post run/ride. I do put some frozen spinach in from time to time, but never considered kale. The color of it looks delicious…

      Thanks Brian! I think kale would be great in a PWO shake! A little protein powder…some steamed kale…yum!

    I had almost the same thing this morning! (I used a handful of walnuts instead of almond butter.) But it was very tasty and satisfying. I really enjoy starting the day with a banana, kale, and So Delicious coconut milk smoothie!

    […] smoothie was very similar to my last leafy green drink , except that I used baby spinach in the place of kale and I added one cup of frozen blueberries. […]
