Energy Boosting | Kale + Pineapple | Green Smoothie

Get your day going with this delicious energy boosting kale and pineapple green smoothie; only 5-ingredients, and loaded with vitamins and minerals.

Step 1: Chop the Kale

You will need to coarsely chop your kale; Leaves only - No stems!

Place 2 handfuls of the chopped miracle plant into your blender.

Step 2: Prepare the Pineapple

Slice half of a ripe pineapple into thick slices. Trim away the hard outer bark/skin and chop into 1" inch sized chunks.

Place into the blender with the kale...

Step 3: Chop Up a Cucumber

Slice half of a cumber into large discs and place into the blender along with the kale and pineapple.

Step 4: Prepare Passionfruit Pulp

As our household is lucky enough to have a passionfruit vine that is currently going gangbusters, I decided to add the pulp of 3 to the blender along with the other ingredients.

Alternatively you could juice a lemon or an orange and if you wanted more of a kick adding a little bit of chillie and/or ginger root would make this drink a winner in my books.

Step 5: Add Water and Blend

Now just add 1 cup of cold filtered water to the blender and then blend at high speed for at least 1 minute or until smooth.

Alternatively you could use coconut water to make this drink even more healthy.

Step 6: Enjoy!

Your green smoothie is now ready to enjoy and should fill approximately 3 standard drinking glasses.

Enjoy! =)
