Kale Avocado Breakfast Smoothie

This 100% Organic Tropical blend packed with Nutrients
In celebration of the warmer weather and the snow finally dissipating, I decided that it's time to fire up the old treadmill and start exercising once again. After much struggle hopping on the old horse again, I decided to experiment with my blender and ended up with this delicious concoction. This smoothie is perfect for a pre/ post-workout snack.

This thick and hardy smoothie is packed with energy, and nutrients and a rich tropical flavour that your body needs after a light workout, or breakfast replacement. This recipe contains a 100% organic ingredients which include: kale, avocado, banana, mango, pineapple and dates.

This recipe is super easy to make and is done in minutes. It is recommended to add in some Organic Whey Powder, which is great to help build and tone muscle mass after a work out. However, I was unable to get my hands on some at this time. I shall invest shortly as my workout training progresses. Anyways, let's get started!

Yield: 1-2 Servings
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 0 minutes
  • 1 Banana, peeled
  • 1/2 Cup of Frozen Mango
  • 1/2 Cup of Fresh Pineapple, cored and diced
  • 2 Leaves of Raw Kale, stem removed
  • 3 Dried Dates, pit removed
  • 1 Avocado, pit removed
  • 1/4 Cup of Ice

1.) First, plug in your blender and add in the banana, dates, pineapple, mango. Blend on medium for about 10-15 seconds until the it has begun to blend.

2.) Next, add in the kale into the blender and blend until the kale has become consistant with the rest of the smoothie.

3.) Finally, add in the avocado and ice. It is important to note to put in the avocado in last as the long you blend it, the thicker it becomes. Add in any amounts of ice as necessary or even some soy or almond milk to taste. Once all of the ingredients have blended smoothly and consistency  poor the shake into a tall glass and enjoy.

Bon Apetit!
