Let me start by saying I am not a fan of kale, at all. In fact, I am not a vegi person either but I am trying new things and trying to be healthy, for once. Knowing all the health benefits that kale has (check them here), I was eager to find a way to put it in my diet. This breakfast smoothie was a great option.
3 punch fulls of kale
2/3 cup frozen mangoes
1 cup of OJ
1/2 cup of pineapple chunks w/ juice
Makes 2 servings. Save one for the next morning!
Let's just say I was full until lunch time and a small plate of edamame to fill me up. I know I'm thin as it is but I'm also the girl who can finish a whole pizza solo and is out of breath from walking to the corner. This had my energy levels up and I felt great all day.
