Avocado Kale Smoothie

My mission for the summer is to eat as many fruits and vegetables as humanly possible. In fact, I was joking with my husband that when I go to the bathroom the theme song from Ghostbusters is going to come on because I just pooped out Slimer! “I ain’t afraid of no Ghost!” TMI, yes probably, but trying to spice up blogs posts a little :) Plus, I don’t have a problem talking about bowel movements. Just ask my husband!

Okay, enough information about my private life. This smoothie not only tastes delicious but is loaded with leafy greens (kale and spinach). Kale can be a little bitter, so when using it in smoothies you can cut out some of this flavor by adding sweeter fruits such as bananas, pineapple or peaches.

Substitute Greek Yogurt for additional non-dairy milk for strict Paleo diet.
