Today I had a delicious breakfast al fresco. I’m spending the week at my boyfriend’s house in South Jersey so I don’t have all of my spices and other basic kitchen stockpile. In order to eat healthy while I’m here I brought tons of fruits and veggies with me. This morning I decided to make an easy smoothie out of almond milk, berries, avocado and kale. Sounds weird, but it was actually pretty tasty.
Fresh kale: one of the world’s superfoods
I tore the kale leaves from the stems and threw them in a saute pan with a few tablespoons of water. I cooked them for about two minutes until they were bright green and softened. I put the leaves on a plate and stuck it in the freezer to cool while I got the rest of the ingredients together.

Thick and filling
This is not a smoothie for the car. It’s chunky and there’s a huge chance that you will have either a piece of blueberry or kale stuck in your teeth when you’re finished (in my case it was both). I couldn’t taste the greenage and I thought the colors were fantastic, like confetti.
What are your favorite smoothie ingredients?
