Strawberries and hearty greens!
This combination is one of my absolute favorites, but I've always hesitated to share it.
Why? Because this green smoothie concoction never has the right look. In a world of bright and happy green smoothies, this one generally looks a little down and out.
Red and green mix to make a boring brownish hue and, and while I definitely don't judge a smoothie by its color (most of my smoothies resemble sludge), I don't rush to take photographs and share; it just doesn't look good. #sadsmoothie
One particular morning while sipping this super-healthy smoothie, I decided it needed a social media upgrade. I knew a bright, vibrant green was out of the question but decided to bump up the green stuff and see if it made a difference.
And oh yeah it did! Bumping up the kale and tossing in some wheatgrass made this green smoothie a little greener, and, nutritionally speaking, it's a homerun!
Kale, wheatgrass, flaxseed, and strawberries take the nutrient density of this smoothie off the charts.
This strawberry and kale smoothie is for the green at heart who still fancy a little sweetness, thanks to the berries and banana. Here it is, the greenest of brown smoothies!
