Jump straight to the Mango Kale Smoothie recipe
This would have to be my favourite green smoothie of all time.
Which is weird, because kale can taste pretty horrible in smoothies, especially if you have my knack for odd flavour combinations.
I once made a kale smoothie with the wrong mix of fruit (I think I used pineapple and kiwifruit) that tasted like burnt rubber. Seriously.
Oh yeah, that one was nice. And I drank it anyway, because I just couldn’t bring myself to throw away all that fruit and greens.
What amazes me is that not only does the kale taste good in this smoothie, but it tastes so awesome that it’s my favourite green smoothie ever.
And I’ve made a lot of green smoothies.
I’ll let you in on a little secret – mango makes any green smoothie taste good. At least, it does if you like mango as much as I do.
And yet I’ve put mango in other green smoothies, and somehow they just don’t taste quite as nice. There’s something special about the way mango clicks with kale that just really works.
So it’s pretty cool that my favourite green smoothie uses kale, because kale would have to be one of the best greens on the face of this planet.
To quote Dr Michael Greger from one of my favourite videos about the benefits of eating plants, “Is there nothing kale can’t do”?
It’s not so cool that organic mangoes are only available from late November to February around here, because it means I have to hang out for nine months of the year just so I can taste this divine concoction again.
But it’s worth the wait.
Just don’t add pineapple.
