5 Steps to Making a Kale Me Crazy Recovery Smoothie (Easy Recipe)
Here's how to make the Kale Me Crazy Recovery smoothie at home.
1. Buy the Ingredients for a Recovery Smoothie
The ingredients for a Kale Me Crazy recovery smoothie recipe are frozen cherries, a banana, cashews, coconut yogurt, almond milk, and vegan protein powder.
These are the key ingredients for the Recovery Smoothie recipe.
Detailed Ingredients for an At-Home Recovery Smoothie
Cherries: Any kind of cherries will do. I prefer frozen cherries because they are less expensive, and you can buy large bags of frozen cherries at almost any grocery store.
Banana: My friend Danielle and I used a fresh banana in our smoothie. You can also peel bananas, cut them in half, and freeze them to make them last longer.
Cashews: Grocery stores like Publix, Kroger, and Whole Foods sell cashews by the pound. You can also buy cashews online. Make sure to buy the unsalted cashews. You can have cashews delivered to your home from Whole Foods through Amazon.
Coconut Yogurt Used in Recipe: My friend and I used one container of the siggie’s coconut yogurt in our smoothie. It has no high fructose corn syrup and is very high in protein (15 grams!). When buying yogurt, make sure to AVOID yogurts that say “lower calorie” or “reduced calorie.” These yogurts have fake sugar, which completely messes up cravings.
Almond Milk: Any brand of almond milk will do. You can also use fat-free or 1% milk in your smoothie as an alternative.
Protein Powder: My friend and I used the Garden of Life Raw Organic Protein Powder in Vanilla. It is vegan, dairy free, and soy free.
However, the vanilla protein powder by Garden of Life has Stevia. I’d recommend the unflavored protein powder or the Trader Joe’s soy protein powder in Vanilla for the smoothie recipe.
2. Add a Cashews, Protein Powder, and Cherries to Blender
Add a small handful of cashews (maybe ¼ cup), half a scoop of Life Raw Organic vanilla protein powder, and a handful of frozen cherries (my friend and I used 8 cherries) to the blender.
3. Add Yogurt, Ice-Cubes, Banana, and Milk
For step 3 of the recipe, add one container of siggi’s coconut yogurt, 5 ice-cubes, and one banana to the blender. Top it off with ¼ cup of almond milk.
Smoothie Making Tip: Add the coconut yogurt in step #3 and not #2. Otherwise, the yogurt will stick to the bottom of the blender.
Optional Ingredient – Spinach: If you’d like, you can also add spinach to your shake to add iron, Vitamin A, and Vitamin K to your smoothie.
4. Blend Ingredients for 5-10 Seconds
Blend all the ingredients in your blender for 5-10 seconds. My friend Danielle loves her Ninja blender.
If you are serious about making smoothies, you can buy a premium Ninja blender from Amazon.
If you are looking a larger, more affordable blender, I’d recommend the Oyster blender. It’s what I own. Oyster sells blenders ranging from $30 to $70.
5. Enjoy Your Recovery Smoothie!
Enjoy your recovery smoothie!
Ignore the bad photo. The other pictures that my friend Danielle and I took were blurry. Plus, my face gets ALWAYS red after running.
