“Life’s Peachy When You Eat Kale” Smoothie

peachykale

My mom and I made this smoothie at her house when I was visiting North Carolina a few weeks ago.  This is my mom’s go-to green smoothie, so I thought I would share it with you!  I am so proud that everyone in my family eats their greens everyday!  A diet high in greens is of extreme importance!  Kale is king green; it is the most nutrient dense green we can consume.  We need to eat a variety of greens, but kale should always make its way into your diet.

I like to change up the type of nuts/seeds and non-dairy milks I use in my smoothies.  My favorite nut is the cashew, my favorite milk is Almond, and my favorite seed is Sunflower…but life would be boring and devoid of nutrition from other types of food if we ate the same thing everyday.  If I make a smoothie one day using almond milk and sunflower, then the next day I will probably use Hemp Milk and Walnuts…just an example!  It’s all about rotating and getting a variety of proper nutrients in our diet.

Enjoy this smoothie!

  3. I seriously think your mom never ages! I remember seeing her in all those years back. And yet you never age either, yes I know “aww you’re so sweet” haha but that’s just me. I think your smoothies are amazing. Do you know any for mangos oh and could you do one with papayas? Yep you inspire me to try all these new things and to follow my dreams. Maybe in the next 10 years, if not before our next high school reunion, I’ll be where I want to be too. ❤
    Much love,
    Jess
