Happy New Year!
Health and fitness is always a major priority for me. But lately I seem to have hit rock bottom. So this year I wanted to double and treble my effort and over come this slump. I still had some fresh kale and parsley in my patio garden and all the other ingredients necessary for it.
It is adapted from the latest Prevent Magazine. I added the additional protein boost. Each serving without the boost is 160 cal (3g protein, 39g carb, 5g fiber, 0.5g fat 56 mg sodium). After a good workout at the gym this was a refreshing and energy boosting smoothie.
1 1/4 cup fresh kale
1 1/4 cup fresh or frozen cubed mango
2 celery sticks
1/4 cup mint
1/4 cup parsley
2 cups fresh orange juice
1 scoop whey protein boost
Blend all ingredients in a food processor until smooth. Pour into 2 chilled glasses. Tasty and refreshing!
