What to put in a kale smoothie:
My favorite things to put in a kale smoothie are fruits that help balance the kale flavor. Because of that, I love adding pineapple and mango. It kind of masks the kale flavor and brightens up the flavor.
Is spinach or kale better for smoothies?
Both kale and spinach are full of nutrients so you can't really go wrong! Kale has almost twice as much vitamin C as spinach, white spinach provides more folate and Vitamin A. Both are great for heart health too!
I like kale better in this spinach because it pairs really well with the tropical fruit like mango and pineapple.
Is it ok to put raw kale in a smoothie?
It's absolutely okay to put raw kale into a smoothie! In fact, it's great for you. Just make sure you wash your kale thoroughly and dap it dry.
Can you use kale stems in smoothies?
I don't recommend putting the kale stems in smoothies. Once you wash and dry your kale, just quickly pull the leaves off the stem and discard the stems. You can roughly chop the kale leaves or just stick them right in the blender.
How to meal prep this tropical kale smoothie:
Meal prep this tropical kale smoothie for the entire week in just a few minutes! Grab 5 plastic bags or stasher bags and fill each one with the banana, mango, pineapple and kale and seal them closed.
