Strawberry and Kale Smoothie

Strawberry and Kale Smoothie

What better way to start the typical health month of the year than with a delicious and super charged nutritious Strawberry & Kale Smoothie? It’s three days into the new year and it’s about time I went into health mode.

Cliche? Yes. Why? Trust me I need it. I don’t know about you, but I went in on the pastries this holiday. Like, “oh I’ve woken up, what pastry should I have?” “I’ve just walked one block, what dessert should I have?” “It’s snowing! Time to celebrate! What dessert should I have to celebrate?”

…the list gets worse.

Strawberry and Kale Smoothie

I figured it was time to stop delaying and dreaming about cheesecake and start off the year right with this Strawberry & Kale Smoothie. Now, let me give you a background; I’m a strawberry fiend. It’s my favourite fruit and if given a choice I usually choose the breakfast or dessert containing strawberries. I also love eating strawberries by themselves and I’ve had endless strawberry smoothies.

Now Kale. I fell in love with Kale after I made Kale Chips and practically inhaled them, and I began using them as an ingredient in anything that allowed me to. Kale is also a SUPER veggie! I’m talking antioxidant loaded vitamins of A, C and K and is generally known as “the healthiest food group”. I also added a tablespoon of Greens Best Balanced Memory Support Dietary Supplement which is a powdered super powered dose of the kale queen itself, broccoli, spinach, parsley, green tea and several others, adding a super charged amount of nutrients to your smoothie. Pretty much, you’re set if you make this Strawberry & Kale Smoothie.

Rest assured that this actually tastes good. Like, I’m impressed! I have had some very “fresh” tasting green smoothies and here you get everything those offer plus a delicious smoothie. It’s a very smooth and creamy smoothie that could be thinned out with ½ cup of milk if you wanted. As I specified in the recipe, you could increase the honey if you want or even use maple syrup or agave nectar in it’s place, it’s really up to you. You definitely get a  clean, detoxed feeling after having this and a nice surge of energy! After barely sleeping last night I feel like I could run four marathons!

Okay, but truthfully maybe one.

  11. Oh my gosh your pictures are STUNNING! And I am sooooo with you on pastries in the morning, oh man it was baaad! But I did give them up the entire week before Christmas, that was an amazing feat for me! This is PERFECT to detox after all that eating. So I am gonna pin this to my #HolidayDetox board!

    • Jessica says:

      Sophia trust me, based on your FB posts you did way better than I did! But thank you 🙂 !

  12. Jelli says:

    It snows there? What? Look like I need to read up on my Jamaica facts 🙂 Smoothie looks delish. I just bought greens and strawberries for smoothie making this week- sadly no kale. Will give it a try with spinach.

    • Jessica says:

      Jelli I was in NY for the Christmas – ah sorry! When I’m rambling in my posts everything comes together :). It would taste great with spinach too!

  13. Jamie H. says:

    I usually put spinach in my smoothie but kale was 0.79 a bunch at my local grocer so I figured I’d give it a whirl. I put a handful of spinach and a fist full of kale but was a bit lazy and didn’t remove all of the stems. A few got in there. I also normally put granola in the smoothie as well along with honey. Left out the granola this time and am really taken aback by the smell. That’s new LOL! I guess it’s an acquired taste! I’m not giving up on it already but my guess is the stems cause the slight bitterness? Hopefully lesson learned!

    • Jessica says:

      Hi Jamie!

      Oh no! The stems definitely caused the smell. I didn’t have that issue at all

  14. Hi there Dear, are you in fact visiting this web site regularly, if
    so after that you will definitely get pleasant know-how.
