Tropi-Kale Smoothie + 30-Day Green Smoothie Challenge

Tropi-Kale Smoothie
I love vegetables, but I still find it hard to consistently get enough servings. I’m willing to bet that you can relate. When half your meals are on-the-go, snacks consist of things that fit in your purse or desk drawer, and dinner is the only homemade meal you eat all day (on a good day), how can you possibly get 9 servings of fruits and vegetables?! It feels impossible and maybe you don’t even try anymore.

How can you boost your fruit-and-veggie intake in a way that doesn’t completely disrupt your life? Smoothies! If you have a few minutes in the morning, you can make a produce-packed smoothie for breakfast. And if you do this everyday, you’ll feel healthierβ€”those fruits and veggies can really make a difference in your day! That’s what Simple Green Smoothies’ 30-Day Green Smoothie Challenge is all about.

The 30-Day Challenge is challenging you to drink a smoothie a day for a month. Simple Green Smoothies makes it easy by sending a weekly email with shopping lists, recipes, and tips. The next challenge starts April 1st, so the time to sign up is nowβ€”and it’s free! To whet your appetite, Simple Green Smoothies is sharing their Tropi-Kale Smoothie recipe below.

    This will have more nutrition if you lightly steam the kale and spinach because the quick cooking brings out 100% of the carotenoids and eating them uncooked yields only 60%. I’m more interested in 100% of the nutrition so I always microwave/steam these veggies a little first. I also wouldn’t ever add the pineapple or high sugar (91%) banana that does nothing but add sugar trash to every blood cell in your body and begins a deterioration process because of it. It is called glycation.

      @ Judith,
      How much sugar is enough sugar? I thought this was a perfectly healthy smoothie. I want to transition to a raw vegan diet but want to make sure that I do it properly. Do you have any recommendations? Did you mean that one banana was too much to start the day? or that a banana had 91% of the recommended daily sugar intake? Thanks in advance for your response.

    This was delicious. I added fresh mint and it reminded me of a mojito.
