What better way to start the typical health month of the year than with a delicious and 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?”

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.

  2. Jessica,

    Thanks for the FAB smoothie recipe, I can’t wait to try it I’m sure I’ll love it. I made your vegan cauliflower soup and am hooked. Your website is fabulous, so beautiful and such delicious healthy recipes.

    Favor, any chance you can add a button so we can save a recipe on a Pinterest board? I see the print recipe option but not the option to share on Pinterest. Small request if possible 🙂

    Thanks!
