This is my first official green smoothie recommendation. I went through quite a few pretty bad recipes but still thought I’d try to be adventurous and find new ways to finish up the kale I bought 2 weeks ago. This one is definitely a winner.
I actually recommend you give this a try. I added cucumber because it was going bad and I needed to finish it, and I had some frozen aloe cubes in my freezer that I wanted to use up. I think they were good additions! I also added in some lemon rind along with the juice.
I was hesitant at first to add the yogurt and almond milk, so I blended everything else first and tried it on a spoon with the yogurt. Glad to say it worked for me. I only used 1/3 cup of yogurt because that is all I had but a full 1/2 cup would be good too.
By the way, this does made a lot of smoothie. I had to pour some out into a cup to blend out some ingredients, but then I added it back to my smoothie cup. I think you could use half of this recipe and add some ice and it would be good for a single serving, too.
I hope you give this a try and let me know what you think. The texture is a little grainy but it smells and tastes really fresh. I wonder…maybe some mint would go well with this?
I promised some smoothie recipes, and here they are. It’s my first time making “green” smoothies, and I had a lot of fun with it. I’ve been saving recipes to try out and I think I’ll keep making updates like these, including the good and (you’ll see next week) the bad.
My supermarket sells huge portions of kale that I’m still working through hence why all the kale in each recipe. I made such big portions because I was drinking them at work in place of breakfast/lunch. I try to not make them too sweet and not use too many fruits but if on the first try it doesn’t taste good, fruits are helpful to make it palatable!

Saturday and Sunday I took a break!
Drinking these smoothies made me really focus on only eating when I was hungry, and it made me want healthier options for dinner because I already planned out the calories for breakfast. I would look forward to making dinner after my workout, so it’s a win win.
What are some smoothie recipes you’ve had that you really enjoy? Let me know and I’ll give them a try!
So It was Valentine’s Day, first one with the Babe. We decided to home-cook a meal: Home Made Ravioli with Vodka Sauce, everything from scratch. We also made a snack and desert, but since everything took so long we left desert for the day after. A true test of the relationship. Here’s the recipe:
