Dr. Kyle’s Breakfast Green Smoothie
Makes 2 servings
6 leaves of kale (remove stem, give to dogs) or a handful or 2 of fresh spinach
4 celery stalks or 1 cucumber
1 cup of frozen mango or berries
1 tablespoon of fresh ground flaxseed or chia seed or hemp seed
½ to 1 fresh jalapeno (if you like spicy in the AM!)
1 spoonful maca powder (optional, has very distinct taste some may not be a fan of. ie my wife)
Fill blender to ¾ high with filtered or distilled water OR non-dairy milk
I also like to add fresh juiced ginger, 1 lemon, 2 juiced carrots and 1 avocado
Optimally recommend a high powered blender (Blendtec or Vitamix)
They are not cheap but you can purchase refurbished models through company.
Given I typically have smoothies daily for breakfast it has been a worthy investment.
A good rule of thumb is using celery or cucumber as a base with kale or spinach.
Sweeten to taste with frozen or fresh fruits.
Avoid regular dairy yogurt or milk or anything synthetic. No need to add protein powder.
