Black Raspberry Kale Energy Booster July 24 2014, 0 Comments
It's Good to Get Some Green
Black raspberries are full of flavor, and also give smoothies a great berry color. One of the benefits of this is you can add a variety of healthy vegetables into your smoothies without ending up with something too bitter or off-color. If you want to sneak in some extra veggies into someone's smoothie, this recipe would certainly do the trick (not that we advocate such things).
- ½ cup Orange Juice
- 1 loosely packed cup of kale or spinach
- ¾ cup or 6 oz plain or flavored Greek yogurt
- 2 teaspoons Black Raspberry Powder OR ⅓ cup Whole Black Raspberries OR 1 teaspoon Black Raspberry Extract
- ½ cup frozen berries
- 1 frozen or fresh banana
- Ice cubes if you like
- Honey if you like
In the order listed above, put all ingredients in a blender. Blend until smooth. You can always add some more juice if your smoothie is too thick. A great way to start your day or give you an energy boost in the afternoon!
