This is what drinking a smoothie looks like in October. A few days ago I had a bunch of leftover kale from making sausage kale soup and even though it’s freezing outside now, I decided it would be a good day to have a green smoothie. In the summer I have this smoothie ALL THE TIME after I run or bike. It’s really more of a green smoothie in disguise. I’ll be the first to admit that I don’t think kale tastes all that great. I love how I can throw a bunch of kale in this smoothie and hide the taste with bananas and mangoes and still get all the nutritional benefits. Give it a try!
- 1 banana
- 1/2 cup frozen mango
- 1/2 cup orange juice or apple cider (I like to use orange juice)
- 1 handful of kale
- 1 handful of baby spinach
Put banana, mango, kale, and spinach in a blender and add about 1/2 cup of juice. Blend. You may have to adjust the amount of juice and add more. Serve and enjoy!!!
Variation: Add a nectarine. If you add a nectarine you won’t need as much juice. I LOVE the nectarine in the smoothie but I hardly ever have them around so it doesn’t happen very often. Let me know what you think!
