piña kale-ada

Smoothie. Addict.

Yep, I admit it. I am addicted to smoothies! There are just so many options! You can let your creativity run wild and your taste buds soar! Plus you can pack them with greens and other superfoods that make smoothies a seriously nutrient dense way to start your day.

Today, after an early 3 mile run through beautiful Haiku, I indulged in a tropical mocktail, modified into a complete breakfast.

piña kale-ada smoothie

  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1 cup fresh pineapple chunks
  • 1/2 cup fresh kale (or one big leaf, de-stemmed)
  • 2 Tbsp chia seeds
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup coconut flakes 

Throw all ingredients into a blender (or a Nutribullet) and blend! Add more coconut milk if you need more liquid.

Garnish with more coconut flakes, a pineapple wedge, and if you need a little more substance: some homemade granola!

Feeling nourished and satisfied :)
