If you like Piña Coladas,
And getting caught in the rain…
then you will love my Piña Kale-ada green smoothie!
I’m still super obsessed with green smoothies and usually have one a day as a snack or in place of breakfast. Since I’m allergic to all berries except for raspberries and also allergic to melon, I don’t have a ton of options when it comes to fruits in my green smoothies. You may have noticed that I use a lot of mango, pineapple, and banana, but I really hope you’re not sick of it! I always try to get creative with the fruits (adding apples, and pears) that I can eat and test out different kinds of milks and juices so my tastebuds don’t get bored.
You will love my healthy piña colada alternative because it has tons of health benefits.
It doesn’t just taste good, it’s good for you!
I’ve created a green smoothie with creamy almond coconut milk, perfectly ripe golden pineapple, sweet coconut water, banana, and vitamin rich kale to transport your tastebuds to a tropical island getaway!
1 cup chopped kale, stems included
1 cup frozen pineapple
1 frozen banana
1/2 cup coconut water (I love Vitacoco)
1/2 cup Almond Breeze Almond Coconut Milk
Blend in a high powered blender until creamy and smooth.
Tip on avoiding chunks of kale: If you don’t have a high powered blender such as a Vitamix, combine only the liquids and kale together in your blender and let it blend on the highest power until the greens are completely pulverized. Then add in the frozen fruit!
If you can’t find Almond Breeze Almond Coconut Milk: you can use 1/4 cup of almond milk and 1/4 cup of light coconut milk mixed together, or 1/2 cup of either almond milk or light coconut milk. I promise it will still taste amaze!
Shortcut: If cutting and freezing pineapple is not up your alley, or frozen pineapple is too pricey, try buying Dole canned pineapple and then strain and freeze it in a ziplock bag!
Oh, and I’m sooooo excited, new shirts will be listed in the RFFMBT online store this Friday!
