Smoothie Review: “Flat Belly Smoothie”

Smoothie Review | The Wilson Buzz

I was a bit worried about this one… The day before I made it I was talking to a woman in my office about smoothies and mentioned I had a spinach one I was worried about, and she was all “Oh, spinach isn’t so bad – it’s the kale ones that are blech!” and then I pulled up the recipe for this one and it was all “KALE” and I was all “Well boo.”

6oz vanilla Greek yogurt
2 Tbsp almond butter (don’t be an idiot like me, this is like peanut butter, not butter butter)
1 cup frozen blueberries
1 cup frozen pineapple
2 cups kale (boo, hiss)
1.5 cups water

Well…kale. I’ve had a cup of coffee and I still have the taste of kale in my mouth. And the almond butter was pretty strong, too. Didn’t really notice the blueberry or pineapple… It was kind of purple, but not as purple as the source photo. I got almost all of mine down on my drive into work, but the last couple swallows were going to be too warm so I backed out. Mr. T said it tasted “earthy” and didn’t even drink half of it. I’m not sure I’ll be doing this one again. Even though I do still have a butt-ton of kale left over.

Tell me how you REALLY feel:
