Coconut Banana Kale Smoothie – No Protein Powder Required

I love smoothies. I have them for breakfast, as snack or with my dinner, depending on my mood. I’m always experimenting with different fruits, veggies and other ingredients to get the best flavor and the healthiest option possible.

I’ve recently gotten into green smoothies by adding kale, spinach, swiss chard and even avocados to some of my smoothies. Raw greens – especially kale – can have a sharp, bitter taste initially so I usually try and add a natural sweetner ( such as fruit) to offset that bitter taste.

I came up with a combo recently while we were snowed in that I just love! Four ingredients, dairy-free and an excellent source of protein via kale –  no protein powder required! So without further ado, one Coconut Banana Kale Smoothie coming right up( is your mouth watering yet?)
