Farm Fresh Kale and Cacao Smoothie

Updated: Sep 9, 2018


I have so much kale on the farm these days it is crazy! So this morning before I headed off to the microbial research lab I threw a quick smoothie together that I drank on my way to work. I must say I was impressed and wanted to share it with you all.


This morning I craved some sweetness and chocolate. So I decided to make a healthy compromise. Rather than indulging in high processed sugars that all cereals and granola mixes have in the store, I whipped up this easy plant-based breakfast that has the guilty chocolate sweetness, but all with wholesome gut-friendly ingredients.


Try the recipe below and let me know what you think!
