The Best Green Smoothie came to me from Pinch Of Yum. I am a hardcore banana and chocolate smoothie girl but this one piqued my interest! It is really GREEN! The only thing in it that is green is kale. And only a handful of it, which imparts no kale flavor!
The basis of this smoothie is frozen mango chunks and peach slices and, of course, unsweetened almond milk. The first time I made it, I found it to be a bit tart. (The recipe calls for honey to taste) I added about a teaspoon of honey the first time, which wasn’t really enough for my taste. The next time I added a tablespoon and that helped. Feel free to add the amount that you prefer. Start with a little then taste it after blending….if more sweetness is needed, add a little more. BTW, that little sprinkle of cinnamon gives it a nice warmth!
Yea! This is paleo friendly, too!Print
