GRASSHOPPER SMOOTHIE

IMG_9415

Ha, got your attention!

I make some version of this smoothie a couple of times a week for my girls and me.  We love it because it is packed with superfoods and greens!  Ok, grasshoppers aren't one of the ingredients, but we like to pretend that they are because that makes it more fun to drink.  The green color and the grassy smell could fool you though.

Grasshopper Smoothie:

3 cups pineapple or mango                                                                                                                    1 1/2 cups yogurt                                                                                                                                 4-5 leaves lacinto ("dino")kale                                                                                                              1 avacado                                                                                                                                                   2 Tbsp ground flax seed                                                                                                                         2 Tbsp chia seed (soak in 1/2 cup water for 20 minutes before adding to smoothie)           1-2 cups water or coconut milk                                                                                                             2 tsp maple syrup
