Smoothies are a great way to frontload your day with produce and nutrition. Just one serving of this power breakfast offers about two-thirds of the day’s calcium and about 25% potassium in a low-calorie package. Frozen banana and avocado are the secret weapons to achieve ice-cream-like creaminess here. The natural sweetness of the banana downplays the earthy notes of the kale, while ginger adds a delightful morning zing. Chia seeds amp up fiber and protein, plus they’re one of the richest plant sources of heart-healthy alpha-linoleic acid (an omega-3 fatty acid). 

How to Make It

Place all ingredients in a blender; process until smooth.
