- 1 medium sized banana, sliced
- Half of an orange
- As much Kale as you'd like (I used 2 big leafs, without the stems)
- 4-5 Strawberries (The grocery store didn't' have fresh ones, so I had to go with frozen)
- 1 cup of Milk of your choice (I went with Almond Milk)
- A blender
I have to stress on how important the half of an orange is in making this smoothie perfect. Adam didn't want it in his, and it ended up not coming out quite right. It was still good, but you could tell it needed a little extra punch.
I'm pretty sure its self explanatory what to do next. I de-stemmed my Kale first, and ripped it into pieces, throwing it in the blender. Then I split apart and added in half of an orange, a few strawberries, and the banana. For the Almond Milk, I measured out 1 cup before adding it in. If you're good at eyeballing this step go for it, but I wanted to be sure I was accurate.
Add your milk in, and blend blend blend! I like my smoothie to be extra smooth, so I left the blender going for about 3-4 minutes, just to make sure. It comes out in quite a thin consistency, but if you'd prefer yours a little thicker, you could always try throwing in some ice, or even putting it in the freezer for a little while.
Thanks to all the Kale, your smoothie will come out a
super appetizing green colour. No need to worry though, it tastes much better than it looks! Pour it into a tall glass, or a cute tumbler if you're on the go, and drink away!
I wanted to add in some protein powder, but Adam didn't have any in his cupboard, so that'll have to wait until I make it again this week. I'm also going to try making it the night before so I can bring it to school, since I never have the time to eat a proper breakfast in the mornings. I'll keep you all posted on how it turns out!
