Healthy Coffee Smoothie

Healthy Coffee Smoothie via Semi-Vegetarian.comBefore you tell me to stop putting kale in everything (ha!) you must give this recipe a try! I was skeptical when I made it the first time, but it is surprisingly delicious. I think I made this coffee smoothie, like, three times  in one week it was so good. You can’t taste the banana and kale at all, probably because the flavor of the coffee and vanilla extract off-set it just enough. It just sort of makes it taste like a lightly sweetened coffee drink (but a million times better for you!).

I’m the only coffee drinker at our house and I’ll often have a tiny bit left in the pot every day. If you’re like me, just collect the remaining bit of coffee in a tupperware container or jar for a few days and you’ll have enough for a coffee smoothie soon enough. Of course, you can always just brew a pot of coffee, let it cool to room temperature, and chill it overnight, too.

What I Ate Wednesday

WHAT-I-ATE-WEDNESDAY-NEW-BUTTON-PEAS-AND-CRAYONSI’m excited to participate in my first What I Ate Wednesday party! I’ve always loved reading these posts from other bloggers over the years. It’s so much fun to see what meals and snacks other people eat on a daily basis, and is a great way to come up with new meal and snack ideas. Follow #WIAW on social media to see what other people are eating, too!

I drink water all the live-long day, so unless otherwise pictured, it’s safe to assume I’ve got a water bottle nearby!

3:00pm- Giant smoothie (avocado, kale, carrot, frozen mango, plain coconut water, and unsweetened almond milk). I pour smoothies in to a normal glass for recipe posts, but in real life I drink straight from my Nutribullet blender cup!
