Many of us do not like a green smoothie or more precisely Kale Smoothie.
But, the benefits of consuming fresh greens are many. Hence, I have found a trick.
So, I pair greens with frozen fruit while making smoothies.
Today morning, I paired a Mango with Kale to make a smoothie. And guess what, it tastes too good.
Therefore, I thought of sharing this recipe with you.
What is Mango Kale Smoothie?
It is an utterly delicious smoothie that has just 6 ingredients – Mango, Kale, Banana, Yogurt, Milk and Honey.
This combination is bomb and a great way to add those greens in your smoothies.
Even if you do not have fresh Mango, don’t worry, you can still make this Mango and Kale smoothie by using frozen mango or mango puree.
Most importantly, whenever you use frozen fruits like frozen banana, the smoothies turn out extraordinary and naturally luscious.
Therefore, while making Mango and Kale Smoothie, I have done the same.
Because of using frozen mangoes, this smoothie turned out super thick and delicious.
Moreover, the taste of mango compensated kale’s, thus, striking a perfect balance.
You may also add chia seeds to it if you want, though I have avoided it.
There is no need to add extra ice because frozen mango will suffice for its coolness and great texture.
Now, without any adieu, note down the recipe for this quick green and fruity smoothie for summer!
