Thank you, Nature’s Greens, for sponsoring this post! As always, all thoughts and opinions are truly my own!
Guess what, y’all?! I’ve finally created the most delicious, and nutritious, green smoothie recipe! I absolutely LOVE green smoothies, but it has been very challenging coming up with a recipe that was tasty and healthy! This flavor combination was perfect and it allowed me to use up some of my leftover produce which helps to reduce waste!
Easy Ways to Reduce Food Waste
When creating my recipes, I like to check my fridge for any leftover produce. I truly hate wasting food, so I tend to save the stems, hulls, and other pieces from all of my fruits and veggies. I keep them in the fridge to whip up a quick vegetable stock or a tasty smoothie like this Kale Mango Pineapple Ginger Smoothie!
The main ingredient in the recipe is—you guessed it, Nature’s Greens® Organic Kale Greens! I love Nature’s Greens because their greens are triple washed and ready to cook, which comes in handy when there’s not a lot of time in the morning! I also love that these kale greens contain a great source of Vitamin A, Vitamin C, and Vitamin K.
How to Make the Perfect Green Smoothie
This nutrient-packed smoothie is super easy to make! Start by placing all of your ingredients in the blender and blend until smooth. For a little added sweetness, I like to add about a tablespoon of honey, but this step is totally optional.
Add if you’re wanting an extra thick and creamy smoothie, try adding a few more tablespoons of Greek yogurt until you reach your desired thickness.
This Kale Mango Pineapple Ginger Smoothie quickly become one of my favorite smoothie recipes because it’s perfectly sweet, fresh and gingery! The addition of the kale, fruit, and Greek yogurt help to add a great amount of fiber and protein. And the coconut water adds natural rehydrating electrolytes.
Another great thing about this Kale Mango Pineapple Ginger Smoothie recipe is that it can be made the night before to help you save a little time in the morning. Just make sure that you have some leftover fruit and a bag of Nature’s Greens Organic Kale Greens on hand!
