Sweet Green Smoothie: Cooking with You on FOX11

January 11th, 2018

I enjoyed “Cooking with You” on Fox11! What better way to start the new year than to get excited about nutrition and wholesome, delicious eating. Justin Steinbrinck I made a nourishing green smoothie and I showed how to make an awesome, satisfying salad by preparing a dressing yourself!

See me in action below! Recipes at the bottom.



1 Stalk kale
1 c. Pineapple, frozen
1T Chia seeds (or flaxseeds)
1/2 Cucumber
1 Scoop Garden of Life Raw Meal
1c. Water (or more to blend smooth)
3 ice cubes
1. Remove the leaves from the stem of the kale and add them to a blender.
2. To the blender, add pineapple, chia seeds, protein protein powder, water and blend on low.  Slowly increase speed until well blended (about 1min).

*I prefer unflavored, unsweetened protein powder varieties! If the natural sweetness from the fruit isn’t enough, try adding dates or 1/2T honey.
