Kale, Carrot, and Flax Fruit Smoothie

by Tiffany in Healthy Eating, Recipes

kaleI just thought I would share a recipe for a delicious smoothie I made this morning. My kids raved over it and demanded more and they were getting plenty of healthy stuff in it.

Tiffany’s Organic Kale, Carrot, and Flax Fruit Smoothie

1 cup homemade almond milk 
1 cup water
2 medium Kale leaves
A handful (6) baby carrots
8 fresh strawberries
1 cup frozen berries (blueberry, raspberry, and marionberry)
1/4 cranberries
One half of a banana
2 tablespoons freshly ground flax seeds

Mix up in a blender (I use a Vita-Mix – and LOVE it!) and it makes enough for the whole family. The smoothie is a muddy orange color with flecks of green from the kale and flecks of red from the cranberries. You can sweeten if needed with honey. I used homemade almond milk to ensure that this recipe is completely raw but store bought almond milk will work too. Enjoy!

    Sounds yummy and I envy you your VitaMix! Short of selling my laptop or not making the car payment, that one’s not in my future real soon. Maybe I’ll get really lucky and find one at a yard sale. :)
