Apple with Kale Smoothie

Over Christmas all my kids were terribly sick with a barky cough, runny nose, and fever. Poor kids. I felt so bad for them!!! They really wanted to just enjoy Christmas, while one of them told me "I didn't know people could get sick when it's Christmas." Bless their hearts.

Finally this week, everyone has been feeling better and no one is coughing anymore. Yay!!! But I started to feel achy with a sore throat and an ear ache right at the beginning of the week.  Knowing that we have some special events coming up this weekend, I just knew I could not afford to get sick. So, because I believe in vitamins and healthy and clean eating I took it to my smoothies to help me feel better. That's right.

First of all, I avoided all dairy (milk), because there are many studies and my personal experience have shown me that whenever I start to feel a bit sick, congested with a sore throat, milk actually makes it worse. So for breakfast that first day I had an Apple with Kale Smoothie. Kale is a super food with a very high content of vitamin C. Exactly what I needed!!!

So I got my ingredients out and took them to my blender.

Apple with Kale Smoothie

2 apples (I used Gala)
2 handfuls of kale
1 banana
1/2 cup of almond milk
1/2 cup of water

Blend away!!!!

This has been my favorite green smoothie so far and I was so glad to have come up with the recipe!  I loved the texture from the apples, it made it juicy and chunky, and I loved getting a high boost of Vitamin C (from the kale and the apples) for my system that sure needed it!

I had the same smoothie again at dinner time and at breakfast the following morning.

I feel great and achy feeling is gone!!!  bye bye germs!
