This nourishing Green Superfood Smoothie is the perfect way to start your day. A delicious, satisfying shake made with kale, spinach, pineapple, banana, Greek yogurt and honey!
I know I am not the first person to tell you that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. It is vital to have a healthy, energizing breakfast like this quick Green Superfood Smoothie to kick-start your day and get your metabolism going.
The characteristic green color of this smoothie comes from adding two good handfuls of spinach and kale. Spinach and kale are both superfoods, meaning that they are nutrient powerhouses that are packed with vitamins and minerals. Both spinach and kale are rich in iron, Vitamin K and Vitamin A. Pineapple, banana and honey naturally sweeten the shake so that it doesn’t even taste like you are consuming green vegetables. Finally, Greek yogurt adds creaminess and a good dose of protein. Feel free to customize this recipe by adding a scoop of protein powder or some ground flax seed or chia seeds to make your smoothie even healthier.
My only tip for making smoothies is this: When adding smoothie ingredients to your blender, always add the liquid (in this recipe, the water) first near the blades. Doing this will help your blender to run a bit more easily.
