This is for my friends who have requested this recipe!
In my experience I drank one smoothie per day for 30 days and lost 6 lbs!
1 handful of kale – super food
½ pear (organic) – good for the digestion – remove stem and seeds
½ apple (organic) – anti cancer – remove stem and seeds
½ banana – sweet and provides potassium
¼ slice of avocado – a very good fat!!! And it makes your smoothie creamy
A small handful of raw cashews – unsaturated fatty acids help prevent heart disease
Filtered water (enough to cover the kale)
Place the Kale on the bottom and add all of the other ingredients on top – add filtered water to cover the kale! Mix it up in the NutriBullet and enjoy!!!
Where I buy my ingredients!

The Kale – Winco, Chucks Produce or Trader Joes! I leave the fat stems – the fruit will drown out the flavor of the kale!
The apples and pears – I only use organic because the NutriBullet pulverizes the ingredients – if I use non organic apples and pears then I will pulverize the pesticides and consume them – just the thought of it sounds lethal!
Trader Joes has a bag of small apples and small pears – perfect size for ½ apple and ½ pear I use and there are about 6 in each bag for about $2.99. That is almost enough to make smoothies for two weeks if I have one smoothie a day!
The bananas – I try to buy organic – depends on my budget but since they have a peel I imagine it is okay to use non organic. The bananas can be peeled and placed in a zip lock bag in the freezer. It makes for a colder smoothie!
The raw whole cashews – I actually use raw cashew pieces in the bulk section at Winco – they used to be incredibly priced at $2.98 a lb – I just went in and they were $5.32 a lb and the bin was empty! What happened???
Mindful Tip! While I am enjoying my smoothie I read about the benefits of each ingredient and visualize my body being affected positively!!! Enjoying my smoothie helps me achieve my goal of fitting more comfortably in my clothes but it also helps provide clarity and mental wellness from within!!! It is so groovy!!!
