Rad Recipes: Bright Eyed Breakfast “Ugly Smoothie”

I want to eat healthier, but I don’t want to spend a bunch of time in the morning fixing something.

So, smoothies!

This one is so ugly it hurts- but dang, does it taste good. Citrusy and not too sweet. Super easy, under 200 calories, and so dang good for the body. Win!

  • Handful of fresh raw spinach
  • 1 leaf of fresh raw kale, stem removed
  • Cup of frozen, unsweetened blueberries
  • 1-2 mandarins (“cuties”)
  • Cup of water
  • Optional: tsp-tbsp flax seeds

Dump it all in the blender, pour in your favorite glass and enjoy!


I know I said it was ugly- but the flecks of color are kind of pretty! Like a granite countertop. 🙂
