I have fallen head-over-heels for smoothies. The majority of my breakfast and snacks consist of fruit and veggie filled smoothies with added vitamin or protein boosts. It is such an easy way to incorporate your necessary servings of produce  and any other juices or health powders that are just inedible by themselves. I have decided to start sharing my recipes with you and hope you will try them out.

“Tropical Madness”

– 2 large bananas

– 1 1/2 cups kale, stems removed

– 1 cup coconut juice

– 1 cup frozen pineapple

– 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract

– 6 ice cubes

Blend until all of the kale leaves are completely smooth, add additional water if needed to blend. And yes, it may look a little…well…green, but that’s natural! You can’t even taste the kale.

  1. Hi Elena

    Cool blog! I must say I am also all about the fruit/veggie Smoothies as well. I usually drink one with dinner since making a smoothie is easier than cooking vegetables :p.

    Here’s what I do:
    -1 banana (I have some in the freezer so that
    way you don’t need to add ice)
    -about a cup of frozen blueberries (very good for you)
    -2 or so large handfuls of baby spinach (can’t even taste it)
    -1 cup of kale with ribs removed
    -1/4-1/3 cup of low-fat vanilla yogurt (lots of documented health benefits to eating active cultures daily)
