"The" Smoothie [video] & A My Thanksgiving Dinner

6 WWPP Posted by 5 years ago 9 Comments

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.

I’d love to hear your story or thoughts on mine.

However, to prevent the massive amounts of spam I was receiving I have turned off comments on any post older than 5 days old. If you'd like to leave me a note regarding this post or anything really try me on twitter (@RoniNoone,) my Facebook page, or even IG (@RoniNoone) I'm so sorry for the inconvenience. I never thought I'd have to do this but it's gotten way out of hand and comment management has become simply too time consuming to manage.

    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

    Hi Stephanie! Thanks. :) My favorite is this one... Optimum Nutrition Any Whey Protein -- 2.7 lbs There's no flavorings or sweeteners. Just pure protein.
