The best basic, smooth, creamy green smoothie. So easy – just blend peaches, mango, kale, almond milk, and ginger. Honey or cinnamon if you want, too! ♡
- 1 cup frozen mango chunks
- 1/2 cup frozen peach slices
- a handful of kale (stems removed) or spinach
- 1–2 cups almond milk
- 1/2 inch slice of fresh ginger
- sprinkle of cinnamon
- honey to taste
- Blend until smooth!
Add more or less almond milk to make this more like a smoothie vs. more like a juice. You can also use water instead of almond milk if you prefer. Coconut water is also nice although it has a bit more natural sugar. Sometimes I find adding a tiny pinch of salt helps the flavor a little bit. This works best with frozen fruit so you get a nice smooth and creamy texture. Protein powder would be a great addition. I’ve also added coconut oil and/or cashews for an extra fat/protein boost. You will get the best results with a high-speed blender, like the Vitamix or the Blendtec. We use both (one at home, one at the studio) and I don’t really have a preference between them. They’re both great. For a good blender that doesn’t cost quite so much, the Ninja brand is pretty good, too. Drink this right after you blend it. You can keep it for later, but be sure shake it up. I don’t recommend drinking it more than 24 hours after you make it.
