Pineapple Coconut Kale Smoothie
I mentioned last week when I talked about Snacks for Mom that I had lost a lot of weight a couple years back and that I had worked really hard to get back to a healthy weight.
When I went through my divorce (yes, I’m a single mom now), that is how my body decided to respond to the stress of such a big life change.
Pounds and pounds just fell off in the matter of months before I could even realize what was happening.
Once I realized and got to a point where I knew I needed to do something about it, I started supplementing with healthy smoothies like this Pineapple Coconut Kale Smoothie.
I was not going to gain back the lost weight by shoving pints of ice cream and bags of potato chips in my mouth.
So, a couple of times a day I would drink big huge smoothie full of nutrients and healthy fats in addition to my meals.
PLUS, it tastes a little bit like a Pina Colada.
I’m totally happy with where my body is at now.
I’m healthy and I feel great.
I’m not longer trying to gain pounds back, but I still love this Pineapple Coconut Kale Smoothie.
It is one of Madeline and my favorite things to eat for breakfast. I love it because she’s getting all those great nutrients in her body.
I highly recommend recipes like this for anyone who has a picky eater (if you can get them to drink it that is!).
It is such a great way to supplement their diet if they’re finicky about what you make for dinner.
Perfect for those days when everyone is a little tired of cereal or toast for breakfast.
If you’re a fan of green smoothies and want a couple of different recipes to mix things up flavor-wise you should also give this Pineapple, Green Apple, Kale Smoothie and this Green Smoothie Bowl a try.
We love them both!
