This green smoothie is perfect for those days when you need some added greens and fiber to get you back on track. It's also a great way to use up extra kale. Want it a touch sweeter? Add some frozen mango or pineapple instead of the squash. Or try adding a date. Enjoy!

Serves: 1
Ingredients
  • 1 cup unsweetened or lightly sweetened vanilla almond milk*
  • 1 cup baby spinach or kale (1-2 handfuls)
  • ½ frozen banana
  • ½ cup frozen, chopped mango or yellow summer squash**
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds and/or 1 tablespoon flax meal
  • *I usually use unsweetened almond milk and just add a Medjool date or extra fruit if I want it sweeter
  • **the mango will make the smoothie a little sweeter and pairs well with the unsweetened milk; if you go for squash you may want 1-2 dates in there to sweeten it up or go for the sweetened almond milk
Instructions
  1. Add all ingredients to a high-powered blender. Process until smooth.
  2. Pour into a glass. Garnish with colorful fruit. Enjoy!
Notes
Garnish ideas:
