You may be surprised, what with all the sugary concoctions that make their way to you, that I actually love to drink green smoothies. They're a great way to get a lot of your veggies and fiber in, without having to eat plates and plates of salad.

Don't get me wrong, I love a good salad, but there comes a point (for me anyway) when you feel like  one more forkful of lettuce will make you start mooing.

Enter the green smoothie. You can pack as much of your greens in as you want, add some fruit and a few other goodies and you're good to go. I love adding Kefir and Chia seeds into my smoothies. Kefir is amazing for getting probiotics, minerals, vitamins, and amino acids - all good for your immune system.

Chia seeds are full of omega-3 oil, anti-oxidants, and are great for dieting. The tiny seeds can be made to taste like whatever you want, and they keep you feeling full for hours. So what's stopping you? Grab some greens, some frozen berries and jump on the green smoothie bandwagon. You're waist and our lips will thank you.

Berry Green Smoothie
Yield: 1 serving        Printable Recipe

2 cups fresh spinach leaves (you can use any greens you like: kale, chard, collard, etc.)
1 cup frozen berries (blueberries are my favorite)
1/2 cup plain Kefir yogurt
1/2 banana
1/4 - 1/2 cup water, juice or almond milk
2 tbsp chia seeds

Place the berries, yogurt, banana, and spinach in a blender. Add your preferred liquid and pulse until smooth. Use as much or as little as you need to reach your desired consistency. If you want your smoothie a little more "frozen", you can add some ice cubes to the blender and pulse until your smoothie is slushy. Add your chia seeds and pulse for a few seconds to combine. Serve immediately and enjoy!

This smoothie is awesome! I'm drinking it right now! But, mine didn't turn out a pretty pink color like the picture. It's actually a grotesque brownish-green. But, as long as I don't look at it, it's great! :) I used the antioxidant mixed frozen berries from Costco and greek yogurt instead of kefir (only because that's what I had in the fridge.) Sooooooo, tasty. Definitely adding it to my rotation. Thanks for sharing!
