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!
