Kale, Berry and Acai Power Smoothie
This particular smoothie is my go-to at the moment, I do change it up every few weeks and get hooked on a new flavour combination but this one has been my number one for the last month and my love of it seems to just grow stronger everyday! The combination of banana, blueberries and strawberries is, as you can imagine, sweet, juicy and delicious! Together they create an awesome fruity flavour, which is seriously enhanced by the unbelievably rich fruity essences of the acai powder, meaning that the veggie taste of the kale goes totally unnoticed, I’ve even tried it with broccoli too and it was still pretty good!
Makes 1 large glass
– 1 ripe banana
-1/3 of a cup of blueberries (60g)
-1/3 of a cup of strawberries (50g)
– 1/2 a cup of kale leaves (remove the hard parts of the stalks) (40g)
– 1/4 of a cup of almond milk or water (60ml)
– 1 tablespoon of ground flax seed
– 1 tablespoon of hemp powder
– 1 tablespoon of chia seeds
– 1 tablespoon of acai
– 1 teaspoon of cinnamon
This might seem like a long list, but it’s not as complicated or challenging as it looks! I keep all the ingredients (except the fruit & kale) in a cupboard above my blender and just throw it all in together every morning, really it’s no hassle at all, don’t worry!
Simply place all the ingredients in a blender together, removing the banana from the peel first of course, then blend into a delicious mix. Depending how liquid you like your smoothie, you may want to add a little more water.
If you’re craving a crunch then sprinkle some extra chia seeds, oats and hemp seeds on the top.
Then sip, love and enjoy – you’ll feel like a goddess all day!
