I always say that I am a “foodie” not a “healthy”. If it does not taste good, I am not going anywhere near it. I do love the taste of veggies and tend to have a healthy palette, but I am not a fan of veggies being in places they don’t belong. So I blend up my smoothies with the mindset of a milkshake. Rich and creamy… check! check!
The thought of replacing creamy almond milk with water was the first hint that this was not going to taste good. The second clue was kale and celery. I thought there was no freaking way the banana and the mango would make taste “buds” with the likes of those two.
Well I can say this, I have no problem admitting when I am wrong. Ok, so I was wrong. I was beyond surprised by how delicious this blend of fruits and veggies worked so nicely together. I liked it so much, I had it again today!
In a blender add a handful of kale (de-stemmed), a whole banana, 1 cup of frozen mango, 1/4 cup Happy Hemp seeds (raw), 1 stalk of celery (washed) and 1 cup of water. BLLLEEEENNNNDDDDDD until everything is nice and smooth. Pour into a cup with fabulous colored straw and sip away!
