Green-eyed monster smoothie


I'm a big fan of protein smoothies, not only for the convenience of an on the go meal but also for fitting lots of nutrients into one glass. This is the recipe for my favorite green smoothie, made with fresh kale. I know a lot of people aren't crazy about greens or green smoothies in general, but this one manages to disguise the bitter taste of the raw kale while still packing a strong nutritional punch.

Scroll down for recipe!


Start with:
2-3 cups coarsely chopped kale
1 small banana, sliced or broken into chunks
1 cup unsweetened almond milk
1 scoop vanilla protein powder, I like Beverly International UMP in Vanilla
a few ice cubes

Blend on low for 1-2 minutes until all ingredients are completely combined, and pieces of kale leaves are as small as possible.

Pour into a cup or a blender ball and enjoy! Feel free to swap your choice of milk (soy, rice, cow's milk) or even orange juice for the almond milk. Berries can also be a great add in or replacement for the banana.
