I'm here (late) with my ode to St. Patrick's Day.... My favorite green smoothie!
Sorry about the whole late thing, but fortunately this green treat can be enjoyed any/every day :)
This has been my go-to smoothie recipe for a while now. I love the sweet, smooth flavor and how thick & creamy it is. It doesn't get much better in my book as far as smoothies go. This recipe tastes like a tropical milkshake~ and if I was drinking it blindfolded, I would never guess it was green. Plus, it's SO good for you!
I love adding spirulina powder~ the stuff that makes it green. There's tons of info out there online about the benefits of this superfood, so do a quick Google search! It's packed with protein, amino acids, calcium, and iron... just to name a few. You will also find apple cider vinegar on my ingredients list. It's not a must, but I love it for the stomach-soothing and antibiotic properties. Another good one to Google if you're interested :)
On with the recipe, but first a tip: Always use frozen fruit in your smoothies! Cuts out the need for ice & keeps your drink from getting watered down.
- 1/2 cup frozen mango
- 1/2 cup frozen pineapple
- 2 Tbsp frozen kale
- 1 scoop vanilla protein powder
- 1/3 cup coconut milk
- 1/3 cup water
- 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
- 1 tsp chia seeds
- 1/2 tsp spirulina powder
- Blend all ingredients until smooth using a blender or Magic Bullet.
