This glowing green mango & kale smoothie is a plant-powered force to be reckoned with…
Vitamin-packed baby kale.
Silky + vibrant mango.
A hearty splash of cold almond milk.
Sweet medjool dates.
Creamy almond butter.
United in a blender and whipped into a mighty green breakfast force.
You can even add a swirl of chlorella if you’re feeling extra fancy (or swampy). What do you think, does the chlorella swirl teeter into swampy-looking-smoothie territory? While editing these photos, I kept asking myself that question. If it does, then feel free to limit your creativity to the straight and narrow topping path. Goji berries, almond butter, etc. tend to be reliably-safe toppings.
I’ll probably stick with almond butter going forward because it’s a good excuse to eat more of the stuff. And a day with more almond butter is a good day indeed.
And a day started with this smoothie has a little extra *glow* to it.
