Good morning green smoothie lovers! AVO-BANANA KALE | 2 cups kale • 2 cups water • 3 bananas, frozen • 1/4 avocado • 1 tablespoon goji berries (optional topping). Bananas are a perfect energy booster—full of iron, potassium (excellent for relieving cramps), and B6 which helps balance mood swings. If you have never tried kale in your smoothie, you may want to start with half kale and half spinach. Also blend your leafy greens with water first to get a juice-like consistency. Then add remaining ingredients and blend again. This helps avoid leafy chunks. If you are looking for banana-free recipes, check out http://simplegreensmoothies.com/green-smoothie-recipes/banana-free-green-smoothie-recipes on or blog. So say it loud and proud-- what's in your green smoothie for day 4? Post it in the comments below rawkstars!
