I feel like this is the start of a slew of posts on smoothies. I’m definitely okay with that, though – they’re so perfect for a quick snack or post workout meal that’s SO full of nutrition. It’s a great way to get some leafy greens, too. I usually don’t have any veggies during the day unless I have some carrot sticks with my lunch, since I usually snack on fruits and yogurt before veggies. Wanting to redeem myself with my first disaster of a smoothie with kale, I decided I’d do a very slight variation of the green spinach smoothie.
Green Kale Smoothie
1 pear, cored
1 orange, peeled
1 frozen banana, peeled
2 cups kale
1/2 t ground ginger
Place all of the ingredients in a blender and mix until smooth.
It’s a bit thick, so a bit fruit juice or water might be a good idea if you want it to be thinned out.
