  • Pinepple, Coconut, Kale Smoothie

    Green smoothies have become the divas of the growing trend toward healthier eating. What with their organic, leafy green, “superfood” status, it’s hard to look away when they enter a room.

    Because they are beautiful

    …and remarkably delicious. It’s almost miraculous how even the most notoriously bitter green can turn into such a delightful treat when it’s blended with something sweet. It’s like if you took Simon Cowell and combined him with Sandra Bullock…and made them into a smoothie.

    Wait, what? Maybe 5 days of smoothies for breakfast has made me a little….delirious?

    Or maybe I’m just excited at the idea of drinking my greens…and getting them in at breakfast. Talk about getting a jump start on the whole “9 servings of fresh produce a day” recommendation!

    No matter, I think you’ll enjoy smoothie #5 on our journey through Six Days of Seriously Satisfying Smoothies.
