7 - Day Green Smoothie Challenge - Day 2

Print Friendly and PDFPrint Friendly

For Day 2, I chose to use kale. I don't regularly eat kale and I always hear about how strong it is, so I was definitely a little nervous. Surprisingly, I think I prefer it over spinach in these smoothies. It has more of that green, herby flavor that doesn't get lost in all the fruit. I think I'll be using it all up this week.

This time I drank this smoothie in place of lunch :)

Refreshing Citrus Kale & Mango Smoothie

  • 2 large handfuls kale
  • 1 large handful spinach
  • 1 cup chopped mango
  • juice of whole lemon
  • 1 tsp (or to taste) honey
Cooking Directions
  1. Roughly chop mango and kale. 
  2. In a separate bowl, squeeze lemon juice and massage through kale. 
  3. Let sit for 10-15 minutes in refrigerator. 
  4. In a blender, pulse all ingredients including spinach until smooth. 
  5. Add honey to taste. Enjoy!
