1/2 cup frozen mango
1/2 cup frozen pineapple
One big handful fresh spinach
One kale leaf
2/3 cup water
Add mango, pineapple, and banana to the blender. Then, add in onekale leaf, and a handful of spinach. Don’t be afraid to make it a big handful — spinach adds protein and will keep you full! It will change the color, but not the taste, we promise! Add in 2/3 cup water, but you may need to add more or less, depending on how strong your blender is. Then, blend and enjoy! You’ll have enough for two smoothies, and this one will keep for up to two days in the fridge.
