kale smoothie recipe
Searching for a perfect, healthy, freezer-friendly green smoothie? This banana kale smoothie recipe, made with only 3 ingredients, is my all-time favorite. It takes seconds to make (so hello morning rush) and is filled with nutrients. It’s just the right size, a small smoothie that’s about 8 ounces total, and it uses frozen ingredients so you don’t have to add ice.
how to make a kale smoothie
In a zip-top bag, place:
- 1 large handful of kale (about 1 packed cup)
- 1 ripe banana, peeled and sliced into 1-inch pieces
TIP: I prefer to buy the chopped, pre-washed kale in the bag for these smoothies. It’s such a time-saver.
Freeze the kale and banana. When ready to make your smoothie, empty the frozen kale and banana into your blender or Ninja. (I use the Ninja Blender which I find blends much more thoroughly than regular blenders.) Add:
- 4 to 6 ounces of milk (regular, soy, cashew, almond, whatever)
For a thicker smoothie, start with 4 ounces of your favorite milk. For a thinner smoothie, go for 6 ounces. If your smoothie is still too thick, add a bit more milk.
Pour into a glass and enjoy!
I suggest splurging on the pre-washed and chopped bag of kale to make these super easy. Choose any of your favorite milks, regular, skim, cashew, almond, soy, whatever.
