A kale packed green smoothie balanced out with frozen mango, raspberries, a touch of cinnamon and Manuka honey. The perfect After School Green Smoothie that both kids and adults alike will be exited for! Done in partnership with QFC.
My kids go through phases when it comes to smoothies and they are currently in a pretty hard-core smoothie after school phase. I LOVE this because smoothies are an excellent way for me to get high-quality leafy greens into their diet as well as sneak an extra supplement or two in there if necessary (too many sick people this winter!).
When QFC reached out to me and asked me to try their new Delivery App, I looked around and thought I would just make a regular shopping order. Then, I realized I was out of a lot of the ingredients I commonly keep on hand to make the kids their after school smoothies.
Smoothie ingredients to the rescue! Delivery was easy and was at my house in about two hours from when I placed my order. The shopper kept me updated via text the entire time and I had delish green smoothies ready as soon as school was over!
This smoothie is simple and while packed with kale, it is not gritty tasting and really well balanced. The mango and raspberry pair together (sweet and tart) and work so well with the cinnamon and honey to deliver a perfectly delicious After School Green Smoothie that your kids (and you!) will look forward to.
One note is that while you can buy fresh organic kale, I prefer to buy the Simple Truth Organic Kale since it’s pre-cleaned, pre-chopped and keeps really well in the freezer.
