Full disclosure, I am not one generally for anything green that comes in liquid form (see my post a few weeks back and the delish tonics from Body & Eden). But, I am slowly reforming old habits and tastebuds. I likely won't be going full force on wheatgrass shots, but in an effort to refresh things in the spirit of spring cleaning, I whipped up a new smoothie mixing in kale, avocado, mango, shaved coconut and banana. Sounds like a completely random mess, but I'm totally smitten. Too often smoothies are loaded with excess sugar and spike your blood sugar - not exactly what you're looking to do when trying to kickstart your day at breakfast. This one's got a great balance of healthy fats from the avocado, protein from hemp seeds (a new obsession), and sweetness from almond milk and a drop of honey or agave nectar. And if that's not enough, drizzle in some vanilla extract which will put you over the top, energized and satisfied all morning long. Spring's an ideal time of year to take stock of your daily food routine, or rut, and polish it up nice and pretty. So...go grab a blender and start your own smoothie.
*And here's a little shout out to my two clients who devised their own detoxifying drink, "the green monster!"
Avocado-Mango Smoothie with Kale, Coconut & Hemp Seeds
Serves :: 2 to 3
1 1/2 cups kale, stems removed
3/4 cup frozen mango (or peaches)

Toss all ingredients into a blender and blend well. Done!
