(Kid Approved) Kale Ginger Smoothie

 The minute my kids walk in the door after school every day, they immediately ask me for a snack. It’s important for me to make this snack healthy and although I’m pretty fortunate that my kids love fruits and vegetables, they don’t exactly love salads and dark leafy greens. However they love this smoothie and request it as their after school snack several times a week!

Kale and Ginger Smoothie

Large handful of Kale (approx 2 large leaves)

1 banana

1 slice of fresh peeled ginger (approx 1/2 inch – and I use a spoon to peel the ginger)

1 cup of unfiltered apple juice (you can sub with unsweetened almond milk to lower the sugar content)

2-3 tbsp of honey

1 large glass of ice

Optional: I also like to add 1 tbsp chia seeds for some healthy fat and/or 1/2 cup berries should I have them on hand. You could also add protein powder to make this a meal replacement!

Mix all together in blender & serve! (This is the blender I use)

If you wanted to make this into a bowl rather than a smoothie, reduce the liquid content to make it thicker and top with toppings such as sliced banana, berries, shredded coconut, chia seeds, granola, and a drizzle of honey.
