Green Protein Smoothie

Once upon a time I visited a magical land called Portland and had a magical green smoothie from Kure Juice Bar.  It had coconut, avocado and kale and was seriously fantastic.  A year and a half has passed since that trip, and after many attempts I have finally been able to create a green protein smoothie that is almost as great as the original one from Kure.

I don’t always love posting smoothie recipes since really all you do is throw a bunch of ingredients in a blender and pour into a glass, but since I spent months trying to re-create the Kure one, I figured this green protein smoothie gets a pass.

The main difference between this smoothie and the Kure Juice bar one is that I added protein powder, but you can still remove the protein powder and it will be quite tasty.  Trust me.

The avocado gives the smoothie a nice creamy texture and the kale is a nice little nutrient punch.  However you look at it, this is a delicious drink that can be enjoyed pretty much anytime.

Healthy Green Smoothie

It’s the day after Thanksgiving so it must be time to post a healthy green smoothie recipe right?  I actually created this smoothie a while ago and just haven’t gotten around to blogging about it yet.  So if you are feeling like you need some extra veggies in your life after your Thanksgiving feast, or just want something light so you can dig into leftovers (stuffing sandwiches are the best!), then you’ll definitely want to give this healthy green smoothie a whirl.

Healthy Green SmoothieThis smoothie is simple.  Just four ingredients that create a light, citrus smoothie with the added benefit of extra vitamin A, C, and K from the kale.  Plus, this smoothie has clementine oranges in it which are just so good this time of year.  I often find myself going through 2-3 clementines a day.

An easy smoothie that’s a perfect way to get some extra fruit and veggies in during the day so you have room for those pumpkin pie leftovers.
