Quick Morning Boost: Banana & Kale Smoothie

Happy Monday!

Monday mornings are always a struggle, but don’t let your morning haze allow you to skip out on breakfast! If you’re in a time crunch but still want a healthy start to the day, then this smoothie recipe is the perfect quick fix. I make this a least once or twice a week for breakfast, or sometimes after my morning workout on the weekends. I stumbled across this simple recipe online, but made a few adjustments to make it my own! All you need are a few basic ingredients & a blender.

Give this recipe a whirl & let me know how it goes…

P.S. – After making your smoothie, fill half of the blender with a soapy water mix & blend to give your blender a quick clean!
