Orange Kale Quinoa Smoothie
Recipe type: Smoothie
This orange kale quinoa smoothie is creamy, refreshing, filling and packs a protein punch thanks to the quinoa. It's also filled with vitamin C and great for fighting off a cold/flu.
  • 2 oranges, quartered, peeled & frozen
  • zest of 1 orange
  • 1 handful kale
  • ¼ cup cooked quinoa, chilled
  • ¼ cup almond milk, cold
  • ¼ of a chilled small avocado, about ¼ cup mashed*
  • 1 frozen banana
  • ½ tsp turmeric
  • ¼ tsp cinnamon
  • Toppings:
  • orange slices
  • granola (I used my coconut orange cranberry granola)
  1. Add all ingredients to a blender or food processor and blend until smooth
  2. Pour into a bowl and top with orange slices and granola
  3. Devour
*The smoothie is still really good without the avocado, but I like the extra creaminess it adds
