Shamrock Smoothie: Kale, Banana, Kiwi and Mandarin Smoothie

Shamrock Smoothie Kale, Banana, Kiwi and Mandarin Smoothie

Spring is coming, the rain is pouring, it is surprisingly warmer than it should be. Therefore, it puts a smile on my face even if there is no sunshine. I love rainy, gloomy weekends!

With St. Patrick around the corner, March 17th, I thought to make something green, like skinny “Shamrock Smoothie”. Now, I may, or may not intentionally use these particular colors, and they worked beautifully in the taste department. If you ask what yellow represent, well, gold of course! 🙂

A few weeks ago I made Kale smoothie, and honestly, it was the most disgusting thing I have ever made in my life. Yes!

I drank every drop of it, but it was so hard, so, so hard! Above all, it keep us healthy. No sugar added, so I thought: “let me start my day with something as powerful as Kale-water-ice cubes-green apple-lemon-SMOOTHIE!”.

Oh! Dear, God! That combo was so bad that it made me “Uuuuggg” aka gag until I finished. I love Kale, I really do, but in my soup and stew with something smoked like bacon or ribs and potatoes, otherwise, there is no flavor for me.

Anyhow, with that being said when you add bananas it gives you instant sweetness and I could deal with that flavor, I actually liked it. Next time, I added kiwi and mandarin with yogurt and ice, and it was even better.

Furthermore, instead of the yogurt, almond milk came to my mind, so there you go guys, Vegan Smoothie was born. However, I loved it, even more, when I added heavy whipped cream. It was creamy and delicious! No sugar necessary because banana, kiwi, and mandarin give you enough sugar.
