Kale Smoothie for Ladies

Kale Smoothie for Ladies

I’m not going to lie… sometimes it’s hard to be a lady. Sometimes there are days when mood swings get the best of you and you become an emotional mess. An emotional mess for absolutely no reason except that, well, you’re a lady.

On days like this it’s best to stay away from your kitchen. On days like this don’t attempt to create a new veggie burger recipe; chances are very high that the recipe that worked so well in your mind won’t work out in reality. And then it’s just awkward when your male roommate walks in on you crying on the kitchen floor. Not that this has happened to me or anything…

If you do decide to venture into your kitchen, I advise you keep it simple. Throw some frozen bananas into a blender and blend it up with some kale. Toss in some maca powder to correct those hormonal imbalances and add some raw cacao powder for good measure — unless, you don’t like chocolate? And then be sure to enjoy this soothing, fiber-filled smoothie curled up in a snuggie while watching your favorite romantic comedy.

Kale Smoothie for Ladies

This smoothie starts with kale for a boost of nutrients and fiber to help keep blood sugar stable. Next, we’ll add some almonds for healthy fats that make this smoothie filling so it can be used for breakfast or a hearty snack.

Maca powder comes from the maca root, which has been used by the Peruvian population for centuries.  It is one of my favorite supplements because it helps support the body’s endocrine system to naturally balance hormones. Maca provides a nice energy boost (without caffeine) and can help with chronic fatigue and low libido. It’s a wonderful supplement to use at any time, but I find it especially helpful as a natural PMS remedy. Maca is the perfect addition to this smoothie because it adds a sweet, malty taste without any added sugars!

Ginger is fabulous for aiding the digestive system as well as providing relief from nausea and cramps (which most of us ladies are pretty familiar with). Fresh ginger can easily overpower the smoothie so I recommend starting with a small piece (about 1/2-inch) if you are not used to the taste of ginger.

Recipe type: Juices & Smoothies
Serves: 1
Ingredients
  • 3 large kale leaves
  • 2 tablespoons almonds
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 1 frozen banana
  • 2 tablespoons raw cacao powder
  • 2 teaspoons maca powder
  • ½-inch piece of fresh ginger (optional)
  • stevia or alternative sweetener to taste
Instructions
  1. Add all ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth!

And, of course, we can’t make a kale smoothie for ladies without chocolate! Raw cacao powder gives our smoothie a delicious chocolate kick while also adding important antioxidants and minerals (like magnesium and iron) that are especially beneficial for women’s health. You won’t believe a smoothie that’s good for you tastes this good!

Note: if you do not have a high-powered blender (I use a Vitamix 5200), I recommend blending the kale, almonds, and almond milk until smooth and then adding the fruit and supplements.

    You’re not the only one who’s ended up in tears over a cooking disaster! You’re right it’s probably best to avoid the kitchen when emotions are running high. I don’t think anything could go wrong when making this yummy-looking smoothie though..except maybe forgetting to put the blender lid on!

    I have to admit I kind of thought this smoothie was a bit out there (even for me), but I am drinking one right now and it is so tasty! I don’t have maca so I used chia seeds.

    I just made this with my VitaMixer and the only change I made was that I used 1/2 cup of Coconut Milk plus 1/2 cup of Choc Almond Milk and then 2 ice cubes. It is very yummy!

    Is there another powder I can use instead of maca. For some reason I can’t use it. I have tried two different brands of maca and both have made me throw up vilently.

    • Sonnet says

      Feel free to omit the maca. You can add another superfood supplement like spirulina if desired, but this would definitely alter the taste so I’d recommend just sticking with the recipe and leaving the maca out. Hope that helps. :)

    A very large table is required in a conference room. Thus we can see
    how few shops boost their sales by using marketing gimmicks especially on festival days.

    I was so cheerful when I saw how our new-found office was
    taking shape.

    Thanks for another informative site. The place else may just
    I am getting that type of information written in such
    an ideal means? I’ve a project that I am simply now running on, and I’ve been at the glance out for such info.

    Originally cars were washed and detailed with the help of
    manual labor but in recent times manual labor has been replaced by
    automated machines and mobile car washing products which include steam pressure washers and carpet cleaners.
    Spray the cleaner gently and let it sit and do its job of loosening the dirt and dust before tackling
    it with the cloth. Even when you try to keep your car neat and clean,
    it’s difficult to find the time to keep it sparklingly clean all the time.
