Kale Green Smoothie with Mango and Bananas

Kale Banana Mango SmoothieIt’s been a long time since I posted a green smoothie recipe. Maybe it’s because of the terrible weather we’ve been having on the East Coast because all I want to eat is comfort food like roast chicken and potatoes…nothing wrong with that! But to lighten up my winter blues, a healthy green smoothie will do the trick!

We all know that eating these delicious comfort foods will help your winter blues but it’s really important to make sure our bodies get the nutrients we need especially during the cold dreary months. Any combination of kale will work well but I used a mix of lacinato and curly kale. Kale is great to add into your smoothies because it contains large quantities of anti-cancer nutrients, anti-oxidants as well as calcium and B-vitamins.
