The Fat Busting Smoothie

  • 1/2 cup Trop 50
  • 1 banana
  • 2 clementines
  • 2 TBS flaxseed
  • 1/2 cup mangos
  • 2 cups of kale
  • 1 cup ice
  • Combine ingredients in order listed in blender until smooth. 
  • Add more liquid and ice to achieve your desired consistency.
  • Serve immediately.
It's pretty obvious that the new year makes a lot of people think hard about getting healthier and losing weight. You can't watch tv or surf the web without seeing some type of advertisement for a gym or a new weightloss product right now. We talked about goal setting in Monday's post, and I definitely fit in with the crowd desiring to get healthier and lose weight. Green smoothies are a great way to do that, and I'm going to try and drink a few green smoothies a week to help me achieve my goals. This recipe is a great one for losing weight and the fruit helps hide the 2 cups of kale. It's a great way to sneak fruits and vegetables into your family as well! I got my Blendtec a few months ago and I have to say it's been a life changer in the smoothie making department. Having a setting that makes a perfect smoothie every time and can grind basically everything is pretty helpful.  I know everyone seems to sing praises about the Blendtec, but it's well deserved (and no, we aren't sponsored by them)! 

We hope that your last night of 2014 is amazing, and that you get to spend it with your loved ones! We have big plans for 2015 and can't wait to share them all with you! We will be taking tomorrow off, but look for Friday Favorites on Friday!
