Makes 1 large breakfast smoothie, sure to keep you full until lunch or further!
This smoothie is delicious. You can vary as you please and don’t worry if you don’t have all of the ingrediants, I usually just throw in whatever is in my fridge, but I find citrus flavoring and agave syrup cut the greens, parsley and cilantro taste.
Calories – approximately 350 [if you use water instead of juice, this will cut calories by about 100]
½ cup fresh or frozen pineapple, chopped
½ cup fresh or frozen mango, chopped
1 banana, pealed
2 leaves dinosaur kale, cleaned
2 leaves curly green kale, cleaned
½ cup cucumber , pealed if not organic
1 handful parley, cleaned w/ stems
1 handful cilantro, cleaned w/ stems
1 tablespoon vanilla
1 tablespoon lemon or lime juice
¾ cup Juice or water, (i used cranberry apple)
1 tablespoon agave or other natural sweatener, not needed but I like it sweet
1 tablespoon spirulina, you can add any supplements you like or none at all
Place all ingrediants in Vita Mix or other high powered blender and enjoy. I think it is better if one of the fruits is frozen so it is chilled and does not heat up while blending.
I buy frozen fruit and sometimes my bananas are frozen, but you can add a few ice cubes.
