Minty Kale, Herb and Orange Smoothie

IMG_4633

 

I LOVE smoothies with herbs in them. Particularly mint, basil and cilantro (coriander). Lucky for me, this smoothie has all three of my favorite herbs! Coupled with fresh valencia oranges, ice and some kale, this smoothie makes for a perfectly refreshing, flavorful drink! This is a great breakfast smoothie or drink for an afternoon pick me up.

Let us begin!

You will need:

– 4 oranges

– 1 handful of basil (about 18 grams or so)

– small handful of cilantro

– small handful of mint

– 2-3 large kale leaves

– 5 ice cubes

– 2 cups water

– 1 tbsp hemp seeds

– 1 tbsp spirulina

Optional:

– 1 tbsp chia seeds

– 1 tbsp flax seeds

Put everything except the kale leaves into your high powered blender. Blend on high, slowly feeding each kale leaf into the blender one at a time. Blend until fully mixed together, about 30 seconds or so.

Pour into a glass, and drink up! This makes 6-7 cups worth, perfect for a meal!

Enjoy!
