Very Cherry Berry Smoothie

Very-Cherry-Berry-Smoothie

Would you believe me if I told you that this smoothie was a green smoothie? Well, it is! That’s right, lots of kale went into the making of my all-time favorite smoothie. This shake is super fast since the Very Cherry Berry Mix comes frozen from Trader Joe’s. The main difference in my smoothie recipes is the fruit combination. My main goal is to get my greens and protein but sometimes I just want a different flavor. Although, this one never gets old 🙂

Ingredients
makes 2 servings
1 cup Trader Joe’s Very Cherry Berry Mix
1/2 cup fresh or frozen mango
1 banana
4 cups kale
1/2 cup silken tofu
13/4 cup steeped green tea
2 tbsp chia seeds
2 packets stevia
4 ice cubes (optional)

Directions

  1. Place all the ingredients, except the steeped green tea and chia seeds, into a blender
  2. Steep the green tea for 2-3 minutes and remove the tea bag
  3. Sprinkle the chia seeds into the green tea and let steep for 10 minutes
  4. Add the ice to the warm green tea and chia seeds to help cool down the temperature
  5. Pour the tea and seed mixture into the blender and blend

As always, enjoy!
