Kitchen Sink Smoothie

This smoothie is aptly named as it includes nearly everything but the kitchen sink itself. This smoothie has plenty of green vegetables, several servings of fruit, and several good-for-you seeds and nuts. It’s also incredibly easy to assemble: just chop everything into large pieces and throw it in the blender and you’ll have a frothy, healthy powerhouse of a way to start your morning. I use 1 frozen and 1 regular banana to help chill the smoothie and to make it creamy. Almonds add protein and the chia seeds are packed with essential nutrients, such as omega-3 fatty acids, antioxidants, and fiber. Here’s to good health! Slainte! (Cheers in Irish)
