Say what? A Green Smoothie Recipe

Today is my birthday. 
The big 21! 

When I woke up, my wonderful boyfriend offered to take me to our favorite little place for breakfast, and I did the unthinkable. 

"Could I have a green smoothie instead?"

What? Did that really just come out of my mouth?
Yes. Yes, it did. 

It's that good. 
It's also great way to sneak in some fruits and vegetables!

I like the pineapple to be frozen and the banana fresh. I think it makes the smoothie a little more creamy. You can also throw in some chia seeds, or other supplement type things if you'd like. 
The best part is the pineapple and banana overpowers the kale. You won't even know it's there! 
But if by chance the kale is too much, start out by putting only a few pieces in, and build up by smoothie from there.


Enjoy!

Do you have a favorite green smoothie recipe?
Please share

    1. You should! Green smoothies are great because you can use whatever is on hand to get a healthy start to your day, but I especially like this recipe!

    1. I use spinach as well, generally whatever "green" I have on hand! Kale takes a little more getting used to if you've never had it... it's a little bitter, but great for you!
