Kale Banana Berry Smoothie

I loved this smoothie. The flavours excited & energized me for the long day ahead. I loved the stunning colour that turned up and especially the little flecks of green & purple. It’s a pretty smoothie. I’m sure you can blend it even more, but I actually like the texture of a ‘rough’ smoothie. Makes me feel like I’m eating a meal in a glass! If you’re not going to drink it all straight away, use a little less chia seeds, since it will basically become a fruit pudding by the end of the day [unless you like that...which I do, then fill your boots!] Also, to mention, the grapefruit juice is perfect in this combination, as it gives it that extra sour twist…rememeber, I’m a sour nut! 
What kind of smoothie combinations do you like? I’d love to hear about them. I love playing with different flavours, so I’m sure this will not be the last smoothie to appear on Flavour

Originating from the trend of incorporating leafy greens into smoothies, this drink offers a balance of natural sweetness from the fruits and a slight bitterness from the kale.

Cooking Tips

  • Use ripe bananas for a naturally sweet smoothie.
  • Frozen berries can be used to make the smoothie cold without diluting it with ice.
