Green smoothie

Spinach, Kale, and Fruit Smoothie

1 cup spinach
1 cup kale
1 cup unsweetened coconut milk (for this I use the So Delicious refrigerated kind)
1/2 cup frozen mixed fruit (I have strawberry, mango, peach right now)
1/2 banana

Throw it all in the blender or magic bullet...

This is more tart than the pear version.  If you like smoothies sweeter, you could add a splash of orange juice or a little honey.  I will keep posting variations of this smoothie because it is such an easy and delicious way to get a serving of veggies in the morning. Kale and spinach are nutrient powerhouses, full of folate, vitamin A, fiber, and calcium. There are reports that the calcium in kale is actually better absorbed than from dairy! Yay, kale!
