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.

Kale Pineapple Coconut Smoothie

So, a couple of times a day I would drink big huge smoothie full of nutrients and healthy fats in addition to my meals.

This Pineapple Coconut Kale Smoothie is loaded with good things like coconut oil, chia seeds, and kale (4 things you should know about kale – all great things that added calories in a healthy way.

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.

Also, all you busy moms out there – this Pineapple coconut Kale Smoothie is super easy to make, especially if you do things like freeze kale or make individual bags of freezer smoothies.

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!
