We like smoothies for a lot of reasons. They are very tasty, they are easy to make (most of the time anyway), and they allow us the ability to add nutritious fruits and vegetables to our diets that we otherwise wouldn’t get. Such is the case with this healthy green smoothie recipe blending Kale with fruit. Makes a really good meal replacement anytime of your choosing.

In your favorite blender mix:

  • 2 cups chopped Kale leaves (if the sharp Kale taste is not for you, try spinach instead)
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped Pineapple (Fresh is great but canned is OK too)
  • 1 previously frozen banana (TIP: Peel and chop the banana before you freeze it)
  • Half cup coconut milk

Everything goes into the blender at the same time. Blend until the mix reaches a consistency you like and serve.
