Can't beat it.

Okay--so it was really awkward posing for a picture while drinking a smoothie.  That's all I'm saying about that.

Green smoothies are an awesome way to recover from a workout, they replenish your electrolytes and if you're looking for extra protein, toss in 1 tbsp of flax seed.

This one that I'm drinking is Foodbabe's "green smoothie that made the news." 
  • Kale is filled with powerful antioxidants, high in Vitamin K (bone health), Vitamin A (skin health), Vitamin C (immune system/metablosm), calcium, iron (liver function)
  • Celery is a good source of Vitamin C, fiber, folic acid, potassium, B1, B6, is a super food for lowering blood pressure
  • Cucumbers are a good source of potassium, electrolytes, antioxidants, vitamin K
  • Grapefruits are rich in Vitamin A, antioxidants, Vitamin C, pectin (inhibits prostate cancer, lowers cholesterol, blood sugar levels)
  • Pineapples contain an enzyme 'bromelain' that has anti-flammatory, anti-clotting and anti-cancer properties, Vitamin C,  B-complex vitamins
What sports drink can make all of those claims?!


  1. Wow! I also love kale smoothie, Nicole and also spinach as both are good sources of vitamin K. Sometimes, I add honey for flavoring.

    1. We like to alternate spinach with kale as well, and usually do a mix of both in our salads! Adding honey is a great idea--I should try it in my next smoothie!
