My mom has been drinking this morning shake for a couple of months now and swears by it. She has more energy and just generally feels better through out the day. So, last weekend while I was visiting she made one for me. I’m not going to lie, I was very hesitant as she handed me the shake in a glass that I couldn’t see what the shake looked like. She said, “It’s better if you can’t see it.” lol! Well, I tried it and to my surprise it was delicious! By the looks of it, it should taste like something a goat would eat! I’ve made a couple for myself over the past week and wanted to share the recipe so everyone else can try!
- 3 leaves swiss chard or kale
- 1 cup of Almond milk
- 1/2 cup of coconut water
- 8 ice cubs
- handful of blueberries (or any fruit of choice)
- 1/2 an avocado
- additional optional ingredients: pine nuts and yogurt
You want the color of the shake to be a bright, lime green.
Place all the ingredients in a blender until ultra smooth. Enjoy! It’s delicious! I know what you’re thinking… Leah the pre-natal vitamins have gone to your head… that looks disgusting. But I promise, it’s really sweet and tastes good! Not to mention it’s packed with tons of nutritional goodness.
