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.

1 cup almond milk
