Green Smoothie with Kale and Spinach

Serves 2

Shake up your smoothie routine with this gorgeous green concoction! This drink is perfect for those who are new to green smoothies since this recipe calls for baby spinach and baby kale which are milder in flavor than mature greens. The banana and frozen mango lend sweetness and creamy texture to this luscious green drink.

Tip: For this blend and green smoothies in general, use ripe bananas rather than unripe ones—ripe bananas are much sweeter and more flavorful than their unripe counterparts, plus they are easier to digest.
