So… the holidays are coming up. I am assuming that your most important question in life right now is: “How do I stay healthy during the holidays?? ” Well.. I can’t help you there. Well… I can. But not in today’s post. Today I will be showing you a healthy recipe that I make practically every other day! It’s a green smoothie that can be a meal substitute or just a snack for in-between meals. Follow these 7 easy steps and you will be a green smoothie maven!!! Like, I’m actually quite obsessed with this smoothie and I just recently perfected the consistency so let’s just get on with it.

STEP 1: Get out a blender. If said blender does not have residence in your kitchen, borrow from a neighbor. If said neighbor is not home, break into their house, take the blender, and leave a note.

STEP 2: Put dogs outside. If you are a dog owner, you will understand this step. Or maybe not.

STEP 3: Chop up kale. Place kale in blender. I’ve never really measured how much I use so I’m trusting you to make an intelligent decision here. Pour another intelligently-thought-out amount of milk over kale. You can use any kind of milk you want. I prefer nonfat, but almond milk is also acceptable. Blend up! Keep blending in kale until you are h a p p y.

STEP 4: Strawberries. Blend.

STEP 5: 3/4 of a large banana. OR 1  small banana. Blend.

STEP 6: 1 handful of blueberries. 1 tablespoon chia seeds. Blend. And that’s it, folks!
