I’m no stranger to green smoothies, but I always make them with spinach. I’ve never tried using kale in my smoothies, but after seeing Brittany’s recipe for a green lemonade smoothie, I knew it was time to give it a go.
I was immediately intrigued when I saw that her recipe just required a blender since most beverage recipes I’ve seen that include kale require a juicer and I don’t have one.
I followed Brittany’s recipe exactly and while I thought it was good, I added half of an apple and the juice of the remaining half of a lemon I had on hand for a little extra oomph.
It was energizing and delicious and I will definitely make it again. I’d love to play around with other flavor combinations and think that adding ginger to Brittany’s recipe would be a fabulous addition as well.
On the side I had a microwavable quesadilla made with shredded cheese a whole wheat tortilla.
After lunch today, I spent some time reading.
I recently registered for AFAA’s group exercise certification and my exam is coming up soon. One of the trainers at my gym is lending me her text book from several years ago so I didn’t have to buy the new one and I’m hoping the older edition will suffice. If any of you out there have your group exercise certification through AFAA and have any words of wisdom to share, I’m all ears!
