The color of this kale smoothie is totally gorgeous don’t you think?
I am in love with it. Pale green and so pretty.
It’s also double-thick and ultimately delicious. So if you’re a smoothie fan, this might well be your new fave!
This recipe is super simple, as expected really because it’s a smoothie not a fancy entree!
But every ingredient in this smoothie works wonderfully and the flavor is simply divine.
This smoothie is ultra creamy and that comes from frozen banana (always a winner in smoothie recipes) which creates creaminess and an ‘ice-cream’ texture for this smoothie, and then we also have cashews providing heaps more creaminess. So really, this is creaminess to the extreme!
We have kale (of course, it’s a kale smoothie), a couple of dates for extra sweetness, a little cinnamon, fresh lime and some minced ginger. Seriously, the minced ginger is the winning ingredient here, it gives this such a pop of flavor and blends so well with the other ingredients.
If you ever go to a juice bar, there are always heaps of juice options that contain ginger, this is because ginger goes so well with juices and smoothies! So unless you hate ginger or something, don’t skip the ginger in this smoothie! It’s super good.
So I hope you’ll love this vegan kale smoothie, it is:
- Kinda like a delicious milkshake!
Make it and serve it right away, this isn’t something that will keep as the fresh ingredients will oxidize, so definitely consume it right away for the most delicious flavor and freshness.
