Green Smoothie with Avocado and Kale

Green Smoothie with Avocado and Kale

You might have noticed I occasionally write about avocados on this blog.  Okay…pretty often…well maybe once or twice a day minute.  Avocados are seriously the best thing on the planet. Not only are they tasty, they are also chock full of healthy stuff, like fiber and potassium.  A half an avocado has about 130 calories, 12 grams of healthy fats, and lots of vitamins and minerals.

One cup of kale has 133% Daily Value of Vitamin A and 134% Daily Value of Vitamin C.  Pair avocado and kale together and you have one awesome power combination!

That is why you should try this  Green Smoothie with Avocado and Kale.  

Going on about avocados again, they are also very filling.  If I drink one of these smoothies I am full for hours. It is quick and easy to throw together in the morning, and If you have a Vitamix this smoothie will be pulverized in a snap!

All you do is throw all the ingredients into a blender.  If you don’t normally drink kefir, you might want to add more pure maple syrup.  Kefir (like greek yogurt) is an acquired taste, one that I think is worth acquiring!  It can be intensely sour if you aren’t used to it.
