You know I had to throw in some sort of green smoothie in this smoothie series!
And before you dismiss this smoothie, hear me out.
It’s called TropiKale for a reason. It tastes like a tropical paradise with a touch of kale and green goodness.
I know the color is probably a turnoff if you aren’t a fan of green smoothies but if you can get past that then you can certainly fall in love with this green smoothie!
It’s loaded with healthy nutrients that your body needs and a great way to get all those greens in without having to chew — haha if that’s your kind of thing.
Anyway, I don’t want to sit here and convince you to make this. Although I really do want you to make this. But hey — I get it. It’s not for everyone and that’s totally okay. But if you are looking to try a green smoothie because you want to give it another shot or you want to try to get into them…you should start with this one because it tastes like paradise!
Oh, and this is a more watery smoothie. Not as thick because there’s not as much frozen fruit in this as with other smoothies. You can easily thicken it with more ice but I kind of liked it more on the liquid side. I felt like I was drinking a cold-pressed juice!
Servings are adjustable but please note that results, timing, and cookware may vary when adjusting servings.
