I really love a homemade smoothie, especially a green one, in the morning, but most of the time mornings are busy and hectic and I don’t have time to make a fresh one…
Kale was on sale (what a rhyme ) at Whole Foods this week!
I bought the Maca powder out of Whole Foods’ Superfood shelf. It is sometimes called the Inca “ginseng”. And although its health benefits haven’t been proven 100%, you can read more about it here . You don’t have to use it though, it’s totally optional. Some people even dislike the taste
And this morning I simple gave it a good shake so everything was well combined again and sipped it with a straw right of the jar. And from my balcony with this pretty view:
What a great start into the day – now let’s get ready for the weekend!
Nothing better than a green smoothie in the morning!
- 3 large kale leaves, hard stalks removed
- ¼ cup frozen pineapple cubes
- ¼ cup frozen mango cubes
- 1 cup unsweetened coconut water
- 1 tsp Maca powder (optional)
- 1 dash of lemon juice (if you don’t drink it immediately)
Put all ingredients in a blender and mix on high speed until liquified and smooth.
Pour into 2 8oz. maison jars. Sip right away or close with lids and store in the fridge until the next morning. Before opening the jars again, give it a good shake so all the components are well combined again.
