Why you are going to love this recipe

This green smoothie or smoothie is very quick to prepare. I used kale, but you can use spinach or any other green. The same with mandarines; use tangerines or oranges. What I’m looking for with this smoothie is to teach you how easy it is to start the day on the right foot.

It’s difficult to start the day with a huge salad bowl, although it would be an ideal breakfast. A salad with nuts, vegetables, greens, and healthy fats. I don’t know about you, but I feel that a healthy smoothie is a better option, especially when it is as easy as this recipe.

Ingredients to make kale and mandarin smoothie

  • Kale, because kale has a lot of superpowers, and I’m a super fan. But if you prefer to add spinach instead, add spinach; the idea is to add some greens.
  • Almonds. Use raw almonds, ones that are not toasted or salted; they should be in their natural state. Almonds have a very high nutritional content and will make this smoothie creamier. You can substitute them with cashews.
  • Mandarines. Any mandarin works well here. You can squeeze the juice out and use it instead of liquid if they are tiny. If you don’t have mandarines use tangerines, or you can use oranges.
  • Liquid. Use natural mandarine juice, almond or oat milk, or coconut water.
  • Extras. You can add a piece of ginger, banana, or maybe some vegan protein powder if you want.
