20140714-075341-28421589.jpg
Looking for a quick and easy breakfast that not you will love but your kids will as well? Look no further! This smoothie is packed full of protein, and essential vitamins and minerals and did I mention dairy free!

Start with 2-3 handfuls of washed baby kale in the base of your blender.
Next add one large banana.
One cutie, clementine or small orange.
Last 1/2 cup to 1 cup frozen berries.

The frozen berries gives it the smoothie consistency and you don’t have to add any dairy. I also always put my frozen items at the top of the blender so it blends faster and it is easier on your machine.

Kale is considered a super food not only for the plant based protein, but from 1 cup of raw kale you will get 206% of your vitamin A, 134% of vitamin C, calcium, iron and potassium. The banana, orange and berries are loaded full of antioxidants along with more vitamin A and C. Add 2 teaspoons of flaxseed to the bottoms of your cup and now you have gotten omega 3’s for the day.
Enjoy today for your health!
