Anyone who knows me knows I'm the queen of smoothies. I've been known to use the blender at ungodly hours in the morning (sorry roomies!!) because my craving for a thick, tart, cold, fruity beverage is so strong I simply can't wait until lunch time.
My go-to smoothie recipe uses frozen mixed berries, frozen pineapples, frozen mango, and a splash of OJ or water. This morning, though, I wanted to try something new...something that was jam packed with nutrients and vegetables without tasting like liquified leafy greens. Since bananas are naturally sweet, I figured frozen banana would be a good option, topped with kale and a splash of orange juice. What resulted was SO good. I literally could not taste the kale AT ALL (funny how that happens!) and found myself wishing I had made a double batch! This smoothie is refreshing, filled with vitamins and fiber, and has no added sugar. Score! I definitely recommend this smoothie recipe if you have a hard time getting all your veggies in or just want an ultra-satisfying breakfast drink.
