The Convenience of Green

14 May

I really don’t like shakes. There is something about crunching down and chewing on food that makes the whole process all the more satisfying and psychologically more filling. Yet there is something to be said about a homemade shake. It easy to transport and you know exactly what is in it. In the mean time I have come up with this Green Banana Shake, super filling and dense due to the kale.

For this Recipe you will need

Ingredients
2 medium size kale leaves
1 large handful of spinach
3/4 cups of coconut flakes
1 medium size ripe banana
1/2 cup of mango cubed
1 lime juiced
1 tablespoon/TBS of maple syrup
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
1 cup of cold water/some ice
Cinnamon to taste.

If the banana is very ripe I forgo the maple syrup.

Directions

1. Add all the ingredients to blender
2. BLEND BLEND BLEND

You should end up with a smooth green concoction. Now this recipe is flexible and you can add coconut milk instead of flakes and diminish the water.The only important thing to keep in mind is; what makes it taste fresh and tangy is the lime and the coconut. Really its all about experimentation and having fun. Keep the ” if i made it I have to eat it” mantra in mind. It is a good way to improve your taste buds and cooking skills. I like to have these shakes after a workout.

If you have any questions drop me a line!

Happy Blending.
