Now, I don’t know about you but I don’t really find the idea of eating raw kale and spinach particularly appetizing at 6:30am but I do find the nutritional benefits appealing. The best way to get around this is to trick your taste buds – fools! – into thinking they are having a sugary treat which is actually super nutritious and the only thing making it sweet is natural sugar, yay!
This is so easy that you can fumble around your kitchen half asleep which you prepare it, although try to be a bit awake as you will be operating a blender.
1 handful of raw kale
1 handful of raw spinach
1/3 cup mixed red berries – I like to get a big bag of frozen blueberries, strawberries and raspberries
1/2 cup chopped pineapple – get a pineapple, chop it all up and keep in the fridge so you can snack on it during the week or throw into smoothies
1 teaspoon chia seeds
Put the greens into the blender first, followed by the fruit and water. The amount of water you use totally depends on your preference, the less water you use, the thicker it will be.
Sprinkle chia seeds on top and enjoy!
