Ingredients

    1-2 cups water
    2 cup fresh kale
    1 ripe mango (peeled and pitted)
    1 ripe banana
    2 tbsp ground flaxseed
    Splenda (optional, nutrition facts reflect usage 1 tsp of Splenda)

Directions

1.) Peel mango with peeler (easier for me). CAREFULLY cut fruit from pit (mangoes are VERY slippery). Discard peel and pit. Grind flaxseed in coffee grinder and set aside (if you do not own a coffee grinder, take them for a spin in the blender and leave them in there).

2.) Add water and kale to blender. Blend until there are no huge chunks of kale floating around. This may take a minute or two depending on your blender.

3.) Add mango chunks, banana, and flaxseed and blend until smooth. After fruit have been blended, add enough water (and Splenda, should you choose to use) for your preferred consistency and take for a quick spin to mix the water well.

Drink as is, with ice, or chilled overnight. Don't forget to experiment with other greens and fruits!

This recipe makes approximately two 3 cup servings.

Keep in airtight container in fridge. Keeps well in fridge for up to 2 days.

Number of Servings: 2

    had mango was it wasnèt ripe so I replaced it with blue berries. If you want a creamier smoothie I would suggest less water (i used two). Although replacing with bluberries may have also contritbuted to it being thinner. - 7/29/10
