Tropical Green Smoothie

So I have noticed that there are days, in which I go on a kitchen experiment overdrive. Like today…let’s see, I made several things in the kitchen and all of them were made for the first time. In addition, to this smoothie, I roasted spaghetti squash seeds, made kale chips, baked bread, and made a chickpea curry. Phew!

I finished packing for our little weekend trip tomorrow and am now sitting down trying to recall what I did for each of those recipes 😉

So, you may have heard that kale is really healthy for you, but don’t know a lot of ways to prepare it. How about adding it to a smoothie? I love eating smoothies for breakfast. It seems like such a yummy and efficient way to get in protein, fruits, and even green leafy vegetables.


Ingredients (Makes 1 smoothie):
3 kale leaves
1/2 banana
1 kiwi
1 cup fresh pineapple
1 cup orange juice
ice cubes, optional (for thicker smoothie, alternatively, just reduce the amount of orange juice)
1 tablespoon ground flax seed

Add all ingredients to the blender and blend until desired consistency.
Superyummy and superhealthy. Cannot have a better way to start the day (or can even be made for a snack during the day!)

Next time, I will try mango instead of kiwi =)
