KCL Friday Finds

Welcome to another Friday Finds! Can you guys believe it's the weekend before Thanksgiving?! Time has been flying by since we moved into our new home, and I'm miraculously keeping up with all of the PR samples and promos and photography. At KCL we've also passed 5K followers on Insta and have a huge giveaway featuring some of my favorite things...over $500 worth of faves (including this gorgeous red nail polish)! You can enter to win here >.

Next week's finds will be Black Friday deals, so there won't be the usual small shops featured, but that is to make way for my big Holiday Gift Guide that will be posted on Small Business Saturday! On today's finds, you get a sneak peek at one of the gift guide picks as well as some self-care bath and body goodies and some adorable ornaments to help you kick off your holiday decor. Enjoy!


When it comes to makeup, nothing could be more perfect for the holiday season than this gorgeous red nail polish. I've featured T…

Strawberry Vanilla Protein Smoothie


This strawberry kale smoothie is packed with protein, Vitamin A, calcium, and a lot of other nutritional goodies. It's a super sweet and healthy way to use up any lingering strawberries you may have from the farmer's market. It's also a great way to sneak some apple cider vinegar into your diet.

While I am trying to eat cleaner these days (okay, except for my weekend treats) I do have a tendency to use protein powder in my smoothies as a quick protein fix after workouts. Though it can be tricky with protein shakes. The mixes don't always taste that great, or they tend to have a weird aftertaste.

This Orgain Organic Plant Based Protein Powder, Sweet Vanilla Bean tastes great with tropical fruits, but I had some leftover strawberries and thought I'd git it a try. It's always a great way to sneak in veggies too, so I added frozen kale into the mix. The Stevia In the Raw gives it just a little extra sweetness without an aftertaste, and the banana makes it creamy. I really love to use unsweetened almond milk, because it's only 30 calories per 8oz. serving, but you can use regular milk if you like. If you wanted to up the vanilla flavor, go for this Almond Breeze Almond Milk, Unsweetened Vanilla.


INGREDIENTS
  • one and a half cups unsweetened almond milk
  • one cup frozen kale (fresh is okay too)
  • one small banana or half a large one
  • half packet of Stevia
  • 8-10 fresh strawberries whole
  • one scoop vanilla protein powder 
  • one tsp apple cider vinegar
Blend until smooth and enjoy!

  1. They look so good...but I'm on the fence about kale.

  2. I haven't tried kale myself, though my parents had it after retirement.

  3. You really can't taste the kale in my smoothie recipes. That's why I love them. You get all of the nutrients, but it just tastes like a sweet fruit smoothie.
