This green energy smoothie is one of my favorites! The combination of nutrient-packed kale, mango, and almond milk is energizing and delicious. Filled with protein and nutrients this smoothie will give you a kickstart. You will be surprised on how sweet and creamy this is. Don’t be afraid of going green!

-From the Kitchen of Chris Freytag

Ingredients you will need:

  • 1 cup frozen kale (I prefer frozen to fresh in smoothies)
  • 1 cup frozen mango
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 1 scoop protein powder ( I always use BiPro unflavored whey protein powder in this recipe)

*I always recommend frozen kale over fresh in smoothies because it’s already chopped and gives the drink a thicker consistency.

Add ingredients in the order listed above to smoothie cup. Blend on low speed until large pieces are broken up. Finish on high speed until well blended.

Do you drink the smoothies as a meal (breakfast) or are they as a treat?

    This is one of my favorite smoothies and I often have it for breakfast! http://gethealthyu.com/recipe/green-energy-smoothie/ A nutritious smoothie can totally be a healthy breakfast, lunch or snack. I don't view smoothies as treats! :) Ice cream is a treat! SMILE!

When you recommend protein powder, any specific suggestions? Source? # of grams? Calorie allowance?
