How to Make this Smoothie
To put this smoothie all together, first prepare the ginger. Easily remove the skin off ginger by scraping it with the back of a spoon, then either finely chop or grate your ginger until you have a teaspoon.
Once you have the ginger, add your ingredients into a blender and gradually blend on a medium-to-high setting until everything is smooth and completely combined. Feel free to add in the extra step to create the kale puree, as mentioned, if your blender has a hard time blending up greens. After you achieve a creamy consistency, pour your finished drink into a glass or shaker cup and enjoy your superfood smoothie!
This recipe may look like it has a lot of ingredients, but there is most likely something in your pantry that you can use to substitute. Just take a look at some of the alternative ingredients, below!
- Spinach instead of kale
- Hemp or flax seed instead of chia
- Frozen avocado instead of chia seed
- Mango instead of pineapple
- Coconut milk instead of coconut water
- Organic Toasted Coconut instead of Unflavored for more sweetness
Tip for Blending Leafy Greens
If you have trouble with using kale in smoothies, you can eliminate any chunky green bits with one simple step. First, add the kale and coconut water into a blender and blend until a smooth puree is achieved. Once you have the smooth puree, simply combine the rest of the ingredients into the blender and blend again until fully incorporated.
