Lose Your Weight Smoothie

Hello everyone!

I have been telling lots of people about the new smoothie I have been drinking to replace a meal a day. Okay, so this health kick is going to last just as long as they usually do- so I've got about 2 more good months and then it's back to an all-candy diet. But for those of you that are interested, here is the recipe:

1/2 leaf red kale
1/2 leaf chard
1/2 leaf collard greens
small handful spinach
4 strawberries
4 blackberries
1/4 cup blueberries
1/4 apple (diced)
1 scoop vitamin powder
1 scoop whey protein powder
1 Tb sugar (I use 2 Tb cause I'm crazy)
1/2 cup water

What I did is buy all of the stuff and then make a ton of ziplock bags filled with these items (except for the powder, sugar and water) and froze them so that each morning I take out a bag and throw it in the blender with the other stuff. The nice thing about this is that the ingredients are already frozen so I don't have to use ice, and it is easy to eat and run. You may have to use a food processor if you don't have a great blender. I like to blend everything with a small amount of the water, and then when it has broken down a bit add the rest of the water to blend completely.

I hope you guys like it! It is actually REALLY good- and I am extremely picky about healthy stuff!
