Mango Ginger Kale Green Smoothie


Quantity Ingredients
1 cup / 250 ml ice, optional
2 cups / 500 ml kale, packed (fresh or frozen)
1 cup / 250 ml frozen mango chunks
1 cup / 250 ml frozen sliced peaches
1 tbsp / 15 ml minced fresh ginger
1.5 to 2 cups / 375 to 500 ml water
1 tbsp / 15 ml maple syrup, optional


Add the ice to the blender and crush. Then add kale, mango, peaches, ginger, lemon juice (start with 2 tablespons and adjust to taste after blending) and 1.5 cups of water.

Blend until smooth, only adding water a little at a time as needed, and scraping down the sides and mixing as needed.

Once well blended, taste and adjust ingredients as needed. If too tart, add more fruit or a little maple syrup. For zing, add extra ginger. For more acidity, add more lemon juice. To make it thicker/colder, add more ice. Blend as needed,
