Certainly one of the best things about smoothies is how adaptable they are. For example, this Kale Spinach smoothie recipe makes use of both fruit and greens and yields a great tasting smoothie that works equally well in the morning to start the day and as an energy booster in the afternoons.
Chia seed is an optional ingredient here and if you do include it you will be making this already healthy Kale and Spinach smoothie even healthier. Chia seed provides a whole range of nutritional goodness including heart healthy, omega 3 fatty acids. Chia seed has no taste of its own so it will just sort of disappear into the recipe.
In your favorite blender mix:
1 1/2 cups unsweetened soy milk

1 frozen banana, peeled and sliced
1 cup chopped kale leaves
cup spinach leaves
1/2 cup fresh or frozen berries (your choice)
1 tbsp. Chia seed
Ice to taste
