Omega Rich Raspberry, Kale Shake or Smoothie (Dairy, Gluten and Refined Sugar Free)

Smoothie's are really my go to meal when I am feeling lazy or just feeling like our meal needs a bit more nutrition.  I find it a great way to get in some extra nutrients and the girls love them.  I have made this one a few times this week and never seem to make enough.  Kale takes a little longer to blend then spinach so make sure you blend it well.
This smoothie is full of Omega 3 fatty acids from the chia seeds and the avocados.  The kale adds in vitamin A,C, K AND calcium.  Enjoy!

Ingredients (makes 4 cups)
  • 2 cups chopped kale, stalks removed
  • 3/4 cup raspberries
  • 2 ripe avocados pitted and peeled
  • 2 tablespoons ground chia seeds
  • Probiotics (optional-I use 2 capsules of Dr. Udo 25 billion enzymes)
  • 3 cups coconut milk or other non dairy milk

  1. Place all ingredients in a blender and purée until very smooth.
  2. Serve immediately.

  1. I made this, but mine turned out green, not pink. :( It was still good, though. I added a little bit of stevia and honey to make it sweet.
