Try This “TropiKale” Green Smoothie Recipe for Tomorrow’s Breakfast
Cooking and coming up with new recipes (especially new ways to health-ify some of my old comfort food staples) are some of my favourite ways to spend my time, so I wanted to share one of my favourite recipes — my super healthy, super tasty TropiKale Green Smoothie!
Most days, I try to hit the gym in the morning with my workout buddy (a.k.a. my husband Alex) and then make us smoothies for a quick, easy, nutritious breakfast. What I’m making varies by what I’m in the mood for that day (and, let’s be honest, what I have in the fridge and freezer), but this green smoothie is becoming a fast favourite. It’s packed with yummy tropical fruit like pineapples and mangoes (which, as a born and raised Caribbean girl, I can’t resist putting into as many things as possible), chia seeds for protein, fibre, and Omega-3, and of course, a heaping helping of fresh kale. If you’re a fan of green smoothies and are as solidly #TeamKale as I am, you’ll want to add this one into your rotation.
Get the recipe below:
TropiKale Green Smoothie Recipe
- 1 – 1 1/2 handfuls of fresh kale, roughly chopped
- 1 cup frozen mangoes
- 1/2 cup frozen pineapple chunks
- 1 1/2 cups Blue Diamond Almond Breeze Unsweetened
- A drizzle of Raw Blue Agave Syrup (just to sweeten things up — this is a totally optional ingredient so feel free to omit)
- 1 -2 tbsp of chia seeds
Put everything except your chia seeds into your blender and blend until smooth. Pour into glasses, and top each glass with a generous sprinkle of chia seeds.
If only all recipes were so easy, right?
