Happy Good Friday! I'm sure most of you were lucky enough to have today off. I wasn't so lucky this year. The company I work for got bought out last year and a lot of changes were made. No more Good Friday's off just happened to be one of them. I'm still thankful for my job though. :o)
This morning I had a Super Green Smoothie! I put more ginger in this one, so it had a bit more bite to it, but it was excellent! The ingredients are below. I put the first 5 ingredients in my blender first and put the blender on the juice setting, so I wouldn't have a chunky smoothie. I let that blend for at least a minute. Then, I added the frozen fruit and changed my blender setting to smoothie and let that blend for another minute. If you're like me and don't have a high power blender like a Blendtec or Vitamix, then this method works great. My smoothies always come out smooth when I use this process.
1 cup water
3 kale leaves
1 tablespoon of lemon juice
1 tablespoon of minced ginger (I think I actually put a little more)
1 frozen banana
1/2 cup frozen mango chunks
