What you need for this creamy Avocado, kale smoothie.
Any variety of kale, old or baby tender leaves will do. Just make sure they are soft and clean. Please be careful when adding Kales, they tend to hold some sand which can be so unpleasant to your teeth. Sort and clean them even when you buy the prewashed ones. You will need One cup of fresh kale.
Buy good quality ripe avocados depending on the quantity you intend to make. Do not buy overripe ones as those tend to go bad quickly and may also not taste fresh. One medium sized avocado is enough for this recipe.
These are readily available no matter the time of the year. I prefer using very ripe bananas for this recipe because they are sweeter. You will not need to add any sweetener.
Chop two bananas and freeze for half an hour before adding them to the rest of the ingredient. You can do this before making the smoothie.
Lemon juice. (Optional)
This juice helps to prevent the avocado from turning brown. You will need a tablespoon of freshly squeezed lemon juice.
Any plant milk can is good. It adds the creaminess of the smoothie and makes it easy to blend. I used one and a half cup of almond milk in mine, but you are welcome to use any that you like.
