Okay, so no roses in this post, but keep reading because this smoothie will rejuvenate you after working in the rose garden. I have one every morning for breakfast.
First I put in a tangerine (or black plum when they are in season). Then comes the kale and 1/4 to 1/2 avocado (depending on the size). Next add 2 teaspoons of sugar (Splenda, Stevia or Nectresse for diabetics, or you may choose to not add any additional sweetener), and a tablespoon of flax seed oil.
Then add 1/4 to 1/2 cup of almond milk and about 3/4 scoop of your favorite protein powder.
Blend all of this together with your Ninja blender (or similar amazing blending device). After blending in the photo below, I have added frozen berries - strawberries, blackberries, raspberries and blueberries (you can also add frozen bananas and there is a "tropical mix medley" available at some stores). To make a pleasing color, I always make sure to add either blackberries or blueberries.
If there is still some space at the top, I will add a bit more almond milk, but be careful to not overfill or you will have a mess (this is experience talking!) Blend again, and you will have the best rejuvenation smoothie, or breakfast smoothie you could ever dream of. I add a handful of roasted or raw (un-salted) almonds (10-15) on the side to make the meal complete.
Try it - if you replace a meal a day, you may also find that it will help you to lose weight. To your health!
