Orange-Cream Smoothie

Bright orange juice is combined with lowfat vanilla-flavored greek yogurt, baby kale (or spinach), ice, and a sprinkle of hemp seeds (yes, hemp. No, it's not the fun kind). Icy, sweet, and healthy for you, this smoothie tastes like an orange cream bar!
Course: Breakfast
Servings: 12 ounces

Ingredients

  • 1 cup of crushed ice
  • 1 cup of orange juice either the fresh-squeezed or the not-from-concentrate variety
  • 1 cup of baby kale or baby spinach
  • 1/4 cup lowfat or 0% fat vanilla greek yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon hemp seeds or flax seeds if you prefer. Flax gives a more nutty taste
  • stevia if needed I don't end up using it

Instructions

  • Using a blender, add the following in this order for best results... baby kale, ice, yogurt, orange juice, and hemp seeds. Blend on high for 2 minutes or until completely mixed. I like to have a smooth texture, without any bits of kale floating around. Adjust the sweetness with stevia or your preferred sweetener.
