Peach, Ginger, and Kale Smoothie

As I’ve mentioned before, I have a smoothie for breakfast every single day. I’ve been doing it for years, and in all honesty, I always make the exact same smoothie. I’ve got the portions figured out perfectly, and since I generally get up pretty early, it’s hard to try new things that early in the day. Because of this, I normally use frozen fruit and don’t take advantage of what is in season. On a recent weekend day when I had a bit more time to make my breakfast, I decided to add some of the peaches that we had around (side note- if you’re in the DC area and want to go pick your own peaches, go here, they are the best!). So if you’d like to start your morning with a healthy and sweet smoothie, try out this recipe.

Ingredients (makes 1)
1 cup of water
2 cups frozen sliced peaches (I didn’t have time to freeze mine, so I threw in 2 handfuls of ice instead and reduced the water)
1 handful of kale, with the thick stems removed
1.5 teaspoons of grated fresh ginger
1 tablespoons of honey
1/2 tablespoon of chia seeds

1. Add all of the ingredients to the blender.

2. Mix until smooth. Oh, and if you’re like me, and prefer to eat on the go sometimes, throw the smoothie in a solo cup for the road.
