This morning I made this wonderful green smoothie for breakfast following my workout! It is a variation on the Green Smoothie from the Oh She Glows cookbook. This delicious breakfast is an easy recipe for busy mornings or for a post-workout snack.
The recipe is very flexible and depending on how you like your smoothies, you can vary the amount of milk or add some yogurt to increase thickness. The ingredients you need are: kale, a frozen banana, almond milk (or any other milk), PB2, stevia, protein powder (I used Vega) and ground flax, chia seeds and hemp hearts.
1 cup of de-stemmed Kale
1 frozen Banana
1 cup Almond milk (Can use less or more depending on desired thickness)
1 tsp PB2 (I used half regular, and half chocolate!)
1/2 tsp Stevia to sweeten (could be left out if you don’t want it too sweet)
1 tsp Protein Powder
1 tsp Ground flax seeds, chia seeds and hemp hearts
Optional: Vanilla greek yogurt to thickness (1 tbsp)
