Lately I’ve been into smoothies in a big way. Some may say it’s an obsession, but at least it’s a healthy one. I’ve replaced regular breakfast with one every day and I feel fuller longer, plus they are so yummy and I can take them out the door with me if need be. I’m going to start posting some of my favorite recipes that I’ve either come across online or made up on my own. With that being said, I’ll start with the lovely creation I had this morning. I don’t know nutritional break down. However smoothie recipes are very forgiving, it’s so easy to substitute another veggie, another fruit, even a different type of milk. So without further ado, I bring you…
Kale Pineapple Smoothie!
Isn’t it a lovely shade of green? Yep, that surprised me too. Here’s how I made it:
1/2 c coconut milk
3/4 c pineapple (I used canned crushed pineapple because that’s what I had but it would be more healthy & probably more yummy with real pineapple)
1 c kale
1/2 frozen banana
Blend, blend, blend! (No ice required)
This has a very tropical feel.
Let me add that I rarely measure so you may get a little more than a big glass full, but if you have someone at home with you they will love this too.
You could replace the kale with spinach and the coconut milk with almond milk. It will still include a superfood and still be delicious.
I hope you try it and love it as much as I do.
