I don’t know about you, but I’m HOT! I don’t feel like doing anything, cooking anything, or even eating anything thanks to the near 100 degree temperatures here in PA. Thankfully, I have a blender and some fresh fruits and veggies, so I decided to drink my lunch!
Tropical Green Smoothie
Makes 1 extra large smoothie or 2 medium smoothies
1 large kale leaf
1/2 ripe mango
2 rings of fresh pineapple
4 frozen strawberries
1-2 TB ground flaxseeds
1/2-1 cup water
1. Place all of the solid ingredients in the blender, waiting until the end to add the water. If you like your smoothies thicker, add less. If you like them a bit runnier, add more water. Blend, and enjoy!
You can always use fresh strawberries instead of frozen and just add a couple of ice cubes in to make it colder – I just happened to have some sitting in the freezer. This smoothie has a wonderful tropical taste with a great green color! Plus, you have a serving of veggies and numerous servings of fruit all in one chilled glass! If you are looking to beat the heat in a healthy way, give this tasty smoothie a try!
