Best Green Smoothie

January 10, 2014


Let’s face it. There are sooooo many Green Smoothies & shakes dashing around the internet. I really didn’t get it…until now. A few days ago I made this one with kale, frozen banana & protein powder. Done & Done. Now I’m a big fan of the green drink too!


The BEST Green Smoothie ever! |

It is a wonder & a pleasant JOY that kale can taste so good in a shake. This is a guilt free, over the top great for ya treat friends.

The BEST Green Smoothie ever! |

Hope you have a wonderful weekend planned. What are you doing?

The BEST Green Smoothie ever! |

I will be downhill skiing, cross country skate skiing, taking pictures of food & most def drinking some of these smoothies for energy!

Can you guess what it is?

    I’ve been drinking one a day. Feeling good! I’ll have to try your recipe. Sounds so tasty and filling with the addition of the banana.

      The banana really helps with flavor & natural sweetness ~ also it is frozen so no need to add ice! xo

    Green smoothies are such a tasty way to get your greens (my husband doesn’t even know I put them in there, haha!). I haven’t tried kale and banana yet…I need to try that next. Thanks so much for adding my Green Smoothie with Avocado and Kale to this list!
