In the morning, I’m often just too busy to eat a good breakfast. And truthfully, after my morning coffee, I’m really just not that hungry yet. I’m stressed and rushing to get out the door, get my son to school, and get to my cardio class at the gym on time.

But, if I skip eating something, then by the time I finish school drop off and my workout at the gym, it’s 1030am, I’m hungry, and my body really needs those nutrients.

So I’ve found that this Strawberry Kale Smoothie Recipe is a fantastic breakfast for me because I can have it made in just minutes, pour it into a tall travel cup, and drink it in the car on the way to my son’s school. It’s light enough that it doesn’t make my tummy feel too full and heavy, but it leaves me feeling perfectly satisfied until lunchtime.

Plus, it packs in tons of vitamins and nutrients. And if you are not a fan of kale, fear not, because you cannot taste it at all in this smoothie. I definitely recommend giving it a try if you are poking for a healthy smoothie recipe to fill you up and give your body a wonderful nutritional boost. Enjoy!

  1. I don’t understand the idea that the fruit composition changes when it’s blended together. What is the difference between it being mixed up in a blender and mixed up in your stomach? The calories don’t magically change if you put fruit in a blender. I’m going to ask my WW leader, but that seems really dumb.

      I totally agree with you on this concept. And i feel like Weight Watchers doesn’t officially have a statement on this, as it seems to vary by leader. But i’d love to hear what your leader has to say!

  2. A few questions : How do you measure a cup of strawberries…cut up or whole? Also, do you pack the kale leaves down to make 1 1/2 cups? And do I need to add the coconut oil? I’ve never bought that before.

      Great questions! When measuring the strawberries, I did them whole, and the cup was a heaping cup. I did not pack the kale down, but again, that was a heaping cup that I mostly just eyeballed. With the strawberries and kale, I wouldn’t worry too much about exact measurements, as going a little over on the amount isn’t going to affect the Points Plus value. The coconut oil is not a necessity, but it does add some really healthy fat. Hope that helps!
