Kale and Spinach Breakfast Smoothie
If you are looking for a nice smoothie for breakfast, this one is perfect. Its got a good mixture of vegetables and a few fruits. When making a smoothie you want to make sure that it’s not just made of fruit, it needs to have a higher % of vegetables.
The Orange and Pineapple really helps to make this smoothie nice and sweet but not too sweet that it’s sickly. It is important that you use frozen pineapple as this cools it down which gives it a really nice fresh taste.
The almond milk is important as this makes it less lumpy and therefore easier to drink, this could be replaced with coconut milk or coconut water if you don’t like almond milk. Make sure this is not replaced with normal cows milk. Put the almond milk in first followed by all of the other ingredients, you may need to push these down a little.
I then put this through the BlendActive and it blended well, I did need to take it off and give it a couple of shakes to make sure the kale moved down. I continued to blend this until it was smooth and tasty!
This smoothie is great for breakfast as it contains 19% of your daily value so it should help to fill you up until lunch. Its also high in Dietary Fiber with 50% of your daily value. In terms of Vitamins it has 29% of Vitamin A, 303% of Vitamin C.Print
