Vanilla Mango Kale Smoothie


I did it. I made it through my first work weekend since January. And dozens of excel sheets and guest reports later, I am one day closer to my "Friday", which is in fact this Tuesday. In the hotel business no one ever really knows which actual day it is because it's all a series of random weekdays as weekends, and you see different faces day in and day out. I would probably lose my mind if I didn't make sure I had something substantial for breakfast each morning (besides coffee, duh). And that's where this smoothie comes in. It's a great way to start your morning, or enjoy as a post workout drink. 


Vanilla Mango Kale Smoothie

Ingredients:
  • 1 cup frozen chopped mango
  • 1 cup packed kale, stems removed
  • 1 tbsp. honey
  • 1 tbsp. flax seed
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp. freshly grated ginger
  • 3/4 cup almond or soy milk
Add all ingredients into a blender. Blend on high until smooth. Make sure the kale is really broken down. Nothing worse than sipping a green smoothie and having to chew threw a chunk of kale.
