Tropical Green Power Smoothie

Don't forget to visit my new facebook page and give me your like and share, thanks so much!

You can't imagine how hard it is to get kale in this country. Fortunately, it is season for kale now and I got local produced one for my smoothie recipe. I must admit, I don't drink green smoothies often. Okay, I never drink any green smoothies. I just like greens in salads. But this genius combination of tropical fruits, kale and lemon grass got me to change my routine and green smoothies got to my daily meal plan. 

I'm sure you all realise the health benefits of green smoothies, especially the kale ones. Kale is one of the most nutritious food in the world. It's loaded with minerals, vitamins and it's daily consumption is one great step in your diet. Green smoothies are one of the easiest way how to consume this vegetable since they turn kale to delicious, sweet drink.

I mentioned in previous post that I started some more serious strength workout again and green smoothie is one of the vegan options for post workout meal. Especially when you choose for your smoothie high GI fruits as banana or dates. I will make my smoothie before I go to gym and bring it in plastic shaker. There will always be something to look forward to while I work out! Either you work out or not, this smoothie will make your day.
