Green Machine Smoothie For Breakfast


 Hey Everyone, 
I hope you all are having a fantastic day! Hubby and I have been debating whether or not if we should go vegan. Last year we gave up eating pork. It was so hard for us because we are a huge fan of jerked pork. With all of the dangers associated with unhealthy GMO food on our supermarket shelves, we've decided to challenge ourselves to follow a diet of organic vegetables, fruits and fish for a week. Wish us luck!   




Ingredients
1 Can of Grace coconut milk
2 Hands full of Kale Mix (Kale, Chard, Spinach)
1 1/2 cups chopped pineapple 
2 Ripe banana, chopped
4 Cubes of Ice 


Directions
Combine the coconut milk, the kale mix, pineapple, banana and Ice in a blender and puree until smooth, about 1 minute. You are free to add water to reach the desired consistency. (I didn't add any water)

I made this for breakfast and it was delicous 


If you know of any great recipes please feel free to leave them in the comment box below.

What are your thoughts on the vegan diet?

  1. That sounds really good - and even better, it's healthy! The color leaves a little to be desired I think lol, but other than that it sounds good.

  2. I am not much into smoothie type drinks--I prefer eating my salad as salad not a drink. This is a very interesting combination-of course being allergic to bananas I would have to leave that out if I were to try it.

  3. I love the fruit and kale combo. I tried a Dr. Oz recipe that was also quite nice.

  8. I have never even tried a green smoothie shake. I know they are so healthy for you, I'm just afraid of the "salad"' taste in a cup. I like how this recipe pairs kale with fruits though.

  30. The colour of green smoothie tend to turn people off it but sometimes you can hardly taste the greens.
