Green smoothies are nothing new and it seems everyone is jumping on the bandwagon.
They usually have kale or spinach in them and other goodies. I have one at the gym after a workout because they return blood sugar to normal and give you a real boost. I also have them if I’m feeling a bit under the weather.
For me, a good green smoothie needs to:
- NOT taste like kale
- be smooth NOT chunky
- Be ice cold
- Have a little sweetness
I just have a regular old blender and it does the job fine you just need to blend for slightly longer
1 frozen banana (i buy in bulk and peel and chop them to freeze)
1 cup finely chopped kale (this can also be frozen)
1 cup fresh pineapple juice
1/2 cup milk
1 tsp honey
1 tbsp almond butter
a few ice cubes if you like
Put it all in a blender and process until smooth
