Description

This “No Fail Chocolate Kale Smoothie” is a staple in our home because according to my kids, “it’s delicious!” We drink it as a smoothie and we make it into popsicles in the summertime. (Simply pour the smoothie into popsicle molds and freeze).

To add the benefits of bone broth, use collagen (use the coupon KS10 for 10% off!) — but never gelatin as it will gum up your blender.


Ingredients

1 cup chocolate hazelnut milk (you can easily sub any type of milk here)

1 cup frozen blueberries

2-3 leaves kale

2 Tbsp raw cacao powder

½ banana (fresh or frozen)

1 Tbsp grass-fed collagen (use the coupon KS10 for 10% off!)


Instructions

Blend everything in a high powered blender (we use a Vitamix) for a couple of minutes and drink to your health!


Notes

  • Raw honey: 1 Tbsp can be added if you are weaning you (or your child’s) taste buds away from sugary, sweet foods towards less sweet tasting foods. Try to decrease the amount of honey as your taste buds adjust. (Don’t give honey to children under 1 year of age.)
  • You can sprinkle extra raw cacao powder or raw hemp seeds on top if you want some delicious decoration.
