How to Make A Green Protein Smoothie
The ingredients I use to make this green protein smoothie are simple:
Frozen Mango. I buy my organic frozen mango from Costco in bulk so I always have it on hand.
Fresh or frozen banana
Fresh or frozen kale. If you don’t have kale, you can substitute spinach in this recipe.
Nut milk. I usually use almond milk but you can use coconut, hemp, or soy. Just make sure you’re choosing one that has a low amount of sugar.
Just add all the ingredients to your smoothie maker or blender.
Blend everything at a low speed until larger pieces are broken up. Finish on high speed until smooth.

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