Green Smoothie



When it comes to breakfast during the work week I am a creature of habit. I go through phases of eating the same thing every day for months, and most recently it's been oatmeal. I am onto a new phase ever since I spotted the Green Smoothie over at Easy Veggie a couple of weeks ago.

What a welcome change this smoothie has been! The ingredients are almond milk, avocado, kale, and mango. I've been loving getting a big dose of fruits and veggies first thing in the morning. After a week and a half of drinking these I've found the perfect measurements of these ingredients for my taste (as listed below). Feel free to add a bit of agave nectar to taste if you like things a bit sweeter.

  3. I'm wondering if you're still drinking green smoothies with kale leaves. I've been using different kind of greens like baby spinach and lactuce in a bag becuase it's too much work for me to prepare kale!

  4. Oraphan -- Yep! I have been using kale, and chard as well. All I do is wash the leaves and tear them into pieces by hand and throw them into the blender. No need to even tear it up small, big pieces are fine. I'll even throw in most of the stalk (minus any really huge thick parts from the very bottom).
