Kale, mango & ginger

As a health enthusiast, I can’t do a smoothie section and not have a green one, can I?
I had to do a green smoothie and don’t be scared- not every ingredient is green ok. It doesn’t consist of sprouts, runner beans and broccoli. It got some leaves in it, yes, but it’s all good. I promise you. Now go buy yourself some Kale and get making this bad boy:

  • 1 Tbsp (6 g) minced fresh ginger

    1. Pop your ice, kale, mango, peaches, ginger, lemon juice (starting with 1 lemon (2 Tbsp or 30 ml) and working your way up) and 1 cup water (240 ml) into your blender/smoothie maker.
