Lean And Green

Go green with Backdrop’s delicious smoothie and salad recipes.

Kale for breakfast does not appeal to most, but before crossing greens off the menu, consider trying a fresh smoothie to get the day started. The combination of the raw taste of leafy greens and the smooth, natural sweetness of fruit makes for a delicious meal.

Plus, fitting in a serving of vegetables in the morning, combined with fresh fruit and non-dairy milk, will help boost energy levels and control cravings throughout the day.

Don’t know where to start? Check out a Backdrop original recipe for a fresh green smoothie. If there is leftover kale, try making a simple Greek salad to pair with the smoothie or to set aside and enjoy later.


Blend together ingredients. Add ice for smoother consistency. Sprinkle raw cacao for taste (optional).

Ingredients For Smoothie Bowl:

2-3 cups kale

1 frozen banana

1 cup raspberries

1 cup vanilla almond milk
