Kale Granola

The combination of kale, oats, and nuts is crunchy and satisfying. Everyone likes to munch on this as a snack – it doesn’t even seem to last until breakfast to top yogurt, mix with fruit, or serve with milk. It’s easy to vary the nuts and the dried fruit with your favorites.

Tropical Mango, Orange and Kale Smoothie

With a mango and two oranges, this smoothie is a light, bright way to start the day. Everything, including the kale, goes into the blender along with a few dates and a banana for fiber and sweetness. I’m happy to drink it all, but it makes enough if you want to share.

The Happy Shake

The creation of raw foods nanny Stacy Stowers, The Happy Shake lives up to its name on several levels: it’s blender easy to make as a meal or snack; it’s packed with blueberries, spinach, raw chocolate powder and a few other ingredients to make you feel good and help you lose weight; and because you feel like you are eating smooth, creamy chocolate ice cream. It’s one of the best smoothie recipes around, in my opinion.
