Papaya Kale Smoothie with Agave

photo 3If you can’t already tell… I am on somewhat of a health kick the month before my wedding. Well, that all went in the can today after tasting wedding cakes with my mom. I needed a light snack and a pick me up this afternoon and I didn’t want to eat too much considering I ate my weight in cake for lunch- so this was the perfect treat for me.

I have been on a kale smoothie/ juice binge lately and I love to add a little bit of sweetness to anything with the kale- I love the earthy flavor but I always think there needs to be an extra something added to make me want to drink something so green, so much…

The agave is the perfect sweetener for this healthy drink and you only need a touch of it.

Enjoy!

Papaya Kale Smoothie with Agave

Ingredients

  • 1 c. fresh papaya (I cut it into wedges like a watermelon and used one long wedge for this)
  • 7 strawberries
  • 1/2 banana
  • Handful of fresh kale (washed) about a cup
  • 1/4 c. or 1/2 c. water  depending on desired thickness
  • 1 tbs. Organic Agave

Directions

Put all items in a NutriBullet (preferred) or blender and mix until smooth. Serve cold. Enjoy!

*side note- I didn’t take exact measurements for this drink but gave a pretty good estimate- you can add more or less of any of the ingredients that you like- I had the most papaya and kale in this one 🙂
