I partnered with Genesis Juice to bring you this post. As always, all opinions are my own.
I love a good smoothie bowl. I mean, how can you not, when smoothie bowls are the perfect balance of healthy and pretty? When Genesis Juice asked me to whip something up for a healthy new year, the image of a vibrant green smoothie bowl immediately popped into my head! I’m usually more of a berry smoothie kind of gal, but with Greenery being Pantone’s 2017 Color of the Year and my new year’s resolutions to eat more greens still fresh on the mind, I decided that kale would be a fitting complement to Genesis Juice’s Ginger Lemonade.
Before you balk at a kale smoothie, give this recipe a chance! I love kale, but I can only handle so much of it in a smoothie. The flavors from the lemonade and other ingredients balance the flavor of the kale. The lively hint of garlic and sweetness of the agave in the lemonade add a nice finishing touch! Even my husband, who is happy to eat kale, but refuses to drink kale smoothies, drank his share without any complaints. Kale yeah!
Green Smoothie Bowl
Makes two smoothie bowls
2 frozen bananas
1 apple, cored
5 large kale leaves (discard the stems)
1 bottle of Genesis Juice Ginger Lemonade
Toppings: chia seeds, blueberries, coconut flakes
Combine the juice, frozen bananas, apple, and kale, in a blender. Blend until smooth. If you don’t have frozen bananas, you can use regular bananas and add ice to achieve the right consistency. Transfer to bowls and add toppings. Enjoy immediately.
