I’m so sorry I’ve been slacking in the Thanksgiving recipe department. I feel like a bad food blogger. Everyone else is posting festive ideas and here I’ve gone missing for a few days.

Maybe it’s because I’m not doing anything special for Turkey day. I finally got my holiday cooking traditions established and now I’m just in execution mode. My menu consists of…

That’s it! Nothing really fancy and all stuff the family likes.

Ok, I think I’ve gotten off track! I’m here to tell (show) you my latest smoothie obsession! Which, by the way is a powerhouse! According to NutritionData.com it is a good source of Vitamin E (Alpha Tocopherol), Calcium, Magnesium and Copper, and a very good source of Dietary Fiber, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin K and Manganese. Nutritional Information and recipe under the video…

Here’s the details…Kale chocolate smoothie

  • 1/2 banana
  • About 2/3 cup of frozen wild blueberries (60g)
  • At least 20g of raw kale
  • 5oz Unsweetened Almond Milk
  • 1 scoop unflavored protein powered (I use Any Whey )
  • 2 tbsp dark cocoa powder (10g)

Blend for about a minute.

Enjoy!

Notes: You can replace the kale with spinach. If you like a sweeter smoothie used sweetened almond milk or add a little honey.

Oh! and here’s that link to the kale fried rice video I mentioned.

    This post convinced me to buy a Magic Bullet! I usually make my smoothies in the food processor but you have to have a big volume in there in order for it to work right. So my hubby got me this as a early xmas present. LOVE your recipe! Thank you! Even my 3 year old loved it. Keep the smoothie recipes coming, Roni!

    Hi Roni,

    I love all your blogs! I have a question for you, I have never tried whey protein but I really want too. Do you have any suggestions?

    Thanks,
    Stephanie
