This Whole30 smoothie relies on vitamin-rich kale, naturally sweet root veggies, low-sugar strawberries, a little banana, and a spoonful of coconut oil. So let’s get blending!
It seems like just about everyone I know is doing or has picked up the Whole30 Cookbook over the last few years. I love the premise of the Whole30 way of eating – whole, unprocessed foods, and NO sugar. It’s great advice for anyone, Whole30 or not. I just prefer to skip the meat and use a plant-based protein in most of my meals. If you’re interested in a plant-based meal plan, check out our Thrive Reset.
I’ve been following Melissa Hartwig on Instagram for the past 2 years and love her passion for being outdoors, or #church, as she says. She understands that what you put in your body will affect what you can do. She chooses to fuel her body with foods that make her feel her best… just like me. And that can look a little different for all of us! (and that’s okay)
My Tasty Whole30 Smoothie
While I don’t personally follow Whole30 myself (I’m on the plant-power train, baby!), I have plenty of friends who have tried it and asked me for a smoothie recipe to help them along the way. Smoothies are a great way to pack more plants into your day, which is why we wanted to create a special recipe full of leafy green and veggies goodness that is lower in sugar, high in fiber, and includes a healthy fat, in this case, coconut oil. And this recipe will keep you going strong!Print
This gorgeous ruby red Whole30 smoothie is jam-packed with antioxidants, fiber, and other nutrients to fuel your body with plant-powered goodness while you eat the Whole30 way.
- 1 cup baby kale
- 1 cup water
- 1/2 medium carrot (peeled and sliced)
- 1/2 small beet (peeled and diced)
- 1/2 cup strawberries (frozen)
- 1/2 banana (medium)
- 1 tablespoons coconut oil
- Place baby kale, water, carrot, and beet into blender. Puree until smooth.
- Add fruit and coconut oil, and any flavor boosters. Blend again.
If you don’t like beets, simply substitute with carrot or extra berries. We like using an MCT coconut oil, but one that is extra-virgin and unrefined is also a preferred option.
