Fat Busting Blueberry Kale Smoothie Recipe
This year I am gettin’ serious about keeping the late winter weather weight gaining at bay … but I had to figure out how to get this done so I scoured the internet to find ways that I could take control of my health and weight. I haven’t ever been overweight per sé but I think we all have those parts of our bodies that we wish we could change, or furthermore, not gain more than we intend to lose again.
I decided upon a workout routine that fits me as well as some changes in my diet. The biggest change that I’ve decided to take on is adding a smoothie to my diet. If I’m honest, I’ll tell you that I’ve never been good about getting my fruits and veggies into my diet. My kiddos do … but I admittedly don’t. So, this is step one.
Step two of crackdown mode is to watch my snacks. Friends, I am a snacker … a bad snacker. Not in the “going to grab myself a banana” kinda snacker. I am more of the binge on some cocoa pebbles kinda snacker. No bueno…
Third, is watching my portion sizes. I know that I overdo it and my stomach will immediately let me know that I once again overdid it. SO, listening to my stomach is the third part of my “transformation” if you will.
While I won’t be tracking my progress online, I will be watching it at home and let you all know any successes I have.
The first success you ask? It for SURE this kale smoothie! Since the smoothie has kale in it there are nutrients busting at the seams from blueberries and almond milk as well. I also have cut my lunch portion down to about a third to a half of what I’ve previously had and add whey protein powder to my smoothie after a workout (my workout is walking a couple miles). I use my Ninja Blender and can’t recommend it enough if you plan to really make smoothies a part of your routine.
Here is the Blueberry Kale Smoothie that I am currently gushing over:
- ½ cup frozen (or fresh) blueberries
- 2 kale stems (about 1 cup)
- 1 banana
- 5-6 ice cubes
- ⅔ c - 1 cup Silk almond milk (vanilla flavor)
- 1 measuring cup of whey protein powder
- Place all ingredients into mixer and blend until smooth. Enjoy!
If you try this kale smoothie, please let me know what you think!
