Lucky Green Smoothie


What is more mod than juicing, blending and eating insanely healthy?

Answer: Juicing and blending a bunch of green crap (including the trendiest power food, kale) to make a St. Patrick's Day smoothie! I almost want to call it the St. Francis smoothie though, because I whipped up this bad boy as the new Pope made his first speech and blessing. 

Either way, this green drink is delish and can be enjoyed anytime of year, although this would make an especially yummy treat for St. Patty's Day morning. Oh, and bonus! This smooth is vegan and gluten-free. Come one, come all! Lucky green smoothies for all!

Ingredients:

1 mango, peeled and pitted
1/2 lime, peeled
1/2 banana
3 cups kale
2 cups spinach
8 oz unsweetened coconut milk

Directions:

Start with pouring coconut milk into the blender. Next, add the mango and banana and blend. After fruit is thoroughly blended, add kale and spinach and blend until smooth. Makes one 32 oz serving. Enjoy!

Yum! I'm a big fan of the green smoothie! In fact, I'm drinking one as I type this! (However mine is a bit purple today as my blueberries overpowered my spinach and kale...)

Thanks for sharing! I'm going to definitely add this to my recipe book.

You should purchase a Nutribullet if you're into juicing. I recently got one and it makes things so much easier. I love how you can make a fruit drink with spinach and kale that looks green, but tastes sweet. I haven't tried banana and mango - it's on my list :)

Abbey, this looks so good! I've seen these pinned on pinterest before, but haven't pinned any because I wanted to make sure I saved the 'right' one. Your recipe with the banana's sounds so good! Definitely will be pinning yours! After I have my baby I am going to be drinking these very often :)
Thanks for sharing!
