Kale smoothie

A really simple but very refreshing smoothie, packed with fruity goodness and fibre!

You will need a blender to make this recipe.

Ingredients

  • 40g/1½oz fresh kale, washed well and any tough stalks removed
  • 1 apple, quartered and thickly sliced (unpeeled)
  • ½ mango, peeled and thickly sliced (around 115g/4oz mango flesh)
  • 1 lime, finely grated zest and juice only
  • 6 ice cubes

Method

  1. Put all the ingredients in a blender. Add roughly 100ml/3½fl oz water and blitz until smooth.

  2. Add a little extra water if needed until you reach the right consistency. Pour into two tumblers and serve.

Recipe Tips

Use frozen mango instead of the fresh if you like, or try swapping for other tropical fruit such as pineapple or papaya. If using frozen fruit, you can reduce the number of ice cubes to 2–3.
