Stress and lack of sleep have gotten the best of me, so now I'm battling a cold. To fight back, I upped my defense this morning with a good 'ol smoothie:
1 small frozen banana
a handful of frozen strawberries
a handful of kale
Put in a blender until pureed.
I normally cringe at the thought of greens in a smoothie, but this time I really couldn't taste them! And I don't think that's because my head is stopped up - I taste a sweet sourness from the orange and strawberries. The coldness feels good on my sore throat, and I'm getting Vitamin C plus a bunch of other nutrients to help my immune system.
Green kale + red strawberries + orange = a murky orange-brown. In a picture, the color looked even worse. So rather than show you, let me just tell you this smoothie was delicious!
