Yummy Antioxidant Green Smoothie Recipe

Last week my family once again had another plague in the house, this time in the form of influenza.  While I took care of my girls I worked hard to avoid getting their virus myself!  I did this with the basics (washing my hands, cleaning surfaces) but also by eating powerful nutrient rich foods and beverages.  

A favorite cousin of mine emailed me a yummy green smoothie recipe full of good nutrients and I gave it a try!  I made a couple changes to work with ingredients I had on hand, but it was pretty close.  I found it a tasty meal replacement and I could just feel my body absorbing the flu-fighting ingredients! :)

So far so good, no flu for me!

Antioxidant Green Smoothie Recipe (1 Serving)

1 cup kale (no stems),
1/2 cup coconut milk & 1/2 cup water (or 1 cup unsweetened coconut water)
1 frozen banana
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1 Tbsp almond butter

Mix it all up in the Vitamix (or blender) and enjoy. Simple. Good.

Be well!
