KCL Friday Finds

Happy weekend, guys!! I've got one beautiful small biz to share with you today, and then I'm doing things a bit differently for today's Friday Finds. I'm getting a bit overwhelmed with complimentary goodies this week, and I wanted to take this time to share my favorites with you. I'll be doing an unboxing video featuring the sample items, to post next week! But first, I did want to share one gorgeous shop with you guys. Check it all out below!

Pictured above are some handwoven home goods by Melody Fulone. Her shop is full of unique and beautifully woven wall hangings, pillows, many other home accessories; and even a bit of fiber art jewelry. I really love the neutral colors and the modern designs.

Shop the 2018 Winter Collection. And keep an eye out for a DIY kit for a crochet wall hanging in a few weeks. Melody will also be releasing her spring collection in late March!


This next brand will go into both an unboxing as well as a B…

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.
