Kale and Raspberry Green Smoothie


No better way to break that morning fast than with a refreshing and satisfying Kale and Raspberry Green Smoothie, chock full of nutrient dense ingredients and maximum flavor!

If I’m being honest, smoothies used to be kind of hit or miss for me — they didn’t always do the best job at keeping me full, which was frustrating, especially when I was at work and didn’t really want to have to stop to grab a snack.

Something that’s often overlooked that will make smoothies more filling is ample protein and fat.

See, when it comes to putting together smoothies, I look at them the same as a meal served on a plate, so I work to incorporate protein, fat, carbs and plenty of non-starchy veggies (hello, fiber!). Smoothies can easily become a sugar bomb thanks to all the delicious fruit, but adding in ample protein, fat and fiber helps to balance out the sugar for happy, healthy blood sugar balance in your body — so that you can have lasting energy, improved satiety, less crazy cravings, and greater ability to give your 100% to whatever life throws at you that day!

Here’s how that breaks down for this glass of goodness:

Protein: protein powder
Fat: avocado, chia seeds
Carbs: banana, raspberries, almond milk
Non-starchy veggies: kale, cauliflower

In general, I try to aim for at least 20-30 grams of protein at a meal, even in a smoothie. Because if you want your smoothie to be a true, ADEQUATE meal replacement, that doesn’t leave you starving and on the fast track to overeating later in the day, then you likely need to add some more protein and fat to it. Need some ideas?

Protein: protein powder, Greek yogurt or skyr, hemp seeds, collagen peptides. I aim for 20-30 grams.

Fat: nut butter, chia seeds, flax seeds, hemp seeds, avocado, coconut meat, nuts and seeds. I aim for 1-2 tablespoons.

As you can see, this Kale and Raspberry Smoothie checks all the boxes. And, it looks AND tastes delicious! Try it out and let me know what you think!

Pro tips to help you maximize your membership :)

Anticipate obstacles: obstacles are like red lights on the way to the store: an inevitable part of the journey. Anticipate them and don’t let them define your ability or stop you from trying.

Take action: you can absorb all the information and education you want, but that’s not what leads to change — taking ACTION is!! Regardless of the results, taking action helps you gain clarity to continue pressing forward. I know this can bring discomfort, but temporary discomfort is better than longterm discomfort. God is mighty in you — you GOT this! 

Ditch all or nothing thinking: we believe something is better than nothing and ANY effort counts. You don’t have to implement 100% of the content to see change and improvements in your health. Each action you take compounds. 40% effort is better than 0%

Ask questions: if you’re confused, not sure where to start, feeling behind, or just have a question for me or the group, ask it! Someone else probably has the same question, so by speaking up you’re getting the answer and helping someone else do the same.
