Nasty But Delicious Smoothie


Hi Everyone, 

I made another awesome smoothie earlier today. Let me tell you it looks absolutely disgusting and pretty much resembles diarrhea. But don't let that turn you off from trying it. 

The Deceiving Smoothie


You Will Need:
1 Cup Fresh Kale
1 Green Apple
2 Cups Frozen Strawberries (You can use fresh as well)
1 Lemon
1 Cup Almond Milk (I used the vanilla flavored one)

What I do is I first chop up my apple into little bite size chunks about a 1/2 inch or so. I than stick the kale first into the blender so its constantly getting mixed (Lets be honest, nobody wants green leafy chunks in their smoothie). I than add the apple chunks on top of the kale, than the strawberries. After this I splash about a cup of almond milk on top than squeeze a fresh lemon before I start mixing. 

Pre-warning: The apple can be over powering if you don't watch it. If you want you could just add just a half an apple instead and more strawberries.  

This smoothie with my recipe is very tart. If you'd like it more sweet just add some banana but watch out how much you use because it can overpower very quickly. 

Let me know if you try it and if you like it as much as I do!

Easiest Beginner Green Smoothie Without Fail

Hi everyone, 

I'll be completely honest, I am not the healthiest eater that there is. I love cookies, chocolate, and mac and cheese too much. But since I'm gaining the pounds from college (freshman 15 do I need to say more?) I've been trying to eat healthier. After drinking tons of those Green Machine Naked Juice drinks, I thought I'd start trying to make my own....and this is what I got. 

The easiest fool proof green smoothie that doesn't taste weird. 

Strawberry - Banana - Kale
Smoothie 

All you will need
+ 1-2 Cups of Kale
+ 1-2 Cups Frozen Strawberries
+ 1 Ripe Banana 
+ 1 Cup Almond Milk (Vanilla flavor is what I used)

If you don't like banana all too much, just add less. It can be extremely overpowering and take over the taste of the overall smoothie. So I recommend just to compensate with more strawberries if you choose to use less banana.

If you add too much or too little it'll just end up tasting more like banana or strawberry. 

So it's pretty fool proof :)

If you try it, let me know what you think :)
