Green super mix

An all-time favorite in our kitchen: the green super mix. It is what we like to call a little health bomb, which both keeps us healthy during the winter season and tastes delicious.

Fun fact:
There are over 50 varieties of kale, which is one of the ingredients in this health bomb. This trendy green is resilient and can survive into the winter. In fact, frost makes it sweeter. Kudos to the kale!

Ingredients
½ banana
½ avocado
½ lemon
A big chunk of ginger
A handful of green kale
Two handfuls of fresh spinach
1 cup frozen pineapple/or mango
Unsweetened almond milk (or any other nut milk you prefer)

Instructions
Peel the lemon and ginger and mix it, together with all the other ingredients until smooth. If you want a thicker and more filling smoothie, take a little almond milk at a time. Enjoy!
