One great thing about smoothies is how versatile they are, there are countless combinations to them.

One of my favorite ways to make a breakfast smoothie is to add quick oats, which you can most definitely add to this recipe to make a more filling breakfast out of it.

Other healthy additives you can add to this recipe include things like chia or flax seeds, protein powder, greens (spinach/kale), or nut butters.

You can also replace the raspberries with any other berry you have on hand or you can replace the almond milk with soy, coconut or cow’s milk.Here’s just a basic recipe to get you started. Enjoy!

Raspberry Kale Green Smoothie

  • 2 handfuls fresh or frozen chopped kale
  • 1/2 cup fresh or frozen raspberries
  • 1 ripe banana , peeled and frozen
  • 1 orange , peeled (I just use a knife to cut the peel off)
  • 1 apple , cored (gala, green whatever you prefer)
  • 1 cup original almond milk
  • 4 ice cubes (optional)

Add all ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth. Yields 2 servings.
