If I drink this smoothie, does that erase the giant burger, basket of fries, multiple milkshakes, and entire bag of chocolate chips that I ate this weekend?
Well I’m gonna drink it anyway.
My three year old daughter had her tonsils out last week. Holy moly, that surgery is no joke! I’m just glad we got it over with! And, she’s doing great.
However, there were some very strict rules regarding her recovery.
Only soft foods. Nothing hard, crunchy, crispy. Nothing hot. Nothing spicy. Nothing too citrusy.
This left me with a menu of yogurt, ice cream, popsicles, chicken, pasta, mac and cheese, jello, and smoothies.
FOR TWO WEEKS!
One would think that a kid would be in heaven only eating ice cream and mac and cheese for weeks on end. But trust me, it gets old. FAST.
I was dying to find a way to get some real solid nutrition in her healing little body.
And this smoothie was the ticket.
It’s great for a quick breakfast, or an afternoon pick me up.
But no, it won’t erase those fries.
A delicious and filling smoothie packed with fruits and veggies.
- 1 cup chopped kale
- 1 cup almond milk
- 1 cup frozen peaches
- 1 ripe banana (sliced)
- 1–2 tablespoons honey (to taste)
- ¼ cup greek yogurt
- 1 tablespoon raw shelled hemp seeds
- In a blender add the kale, milk, and peaches and blend. Add the banana, honey, yogurt, and hemp seeds and blend on high until smooth. Serve immediately!
Your body will thank you.
