Mama Megan's Green Smoothie

GreensmoothieSchool has now been in session for over three weeks.  Needless to say, as a kindergarten teacher and mother of four I am exposed to a LOT of germs. 

A couple of months ago I started drinking green smoothies in the morning. This has been one small effort to be proactive with immune defense that has become a habit.

I am always working to find balance with my responsibilities, care for others, and care for myself.

Lately, I have been tapping into the power of kale.

Want to give it a try?  Here's my recipe:

Mama Megan's Green Smoothie

  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 1 banana
  • 1 loosely packed cup of kale greens
  • 5 baby carrots
  • 1 heaping tablespoon of vanilla greek yogurt    
  • (optional) 1/4 cup frozen berries

Blend together to your desired consistency.  This recipe makes approx. 16 ounces.  (I usually share with my kids pouring their serving into 3 oz. paper cups.)

We are now over three weeks into the school year and I have been feeling really healthy.  Starting the day with this green smoothie can't hurt!
