Green smoothie ingredients
kale: kale is filled with nutrients but often gets a bad rap for being bitter. The key here is that we are using sweet and tropical fruits to balance out the flavors so that it is delicious!
fresh ginger: I love adding fresh ginger to a smoothie for an added “zing” as well as all of the health benefits that it brings.
oranges: the strong fresh taste of citrus-y oranges is just what this smoothie needs to offset the taste of the kale. Added bonus is the all the vitamin c!
lemon: lemon is a great way to detox and tastes so refreshing in this kale smoothie!
frozen banana: frozen bananas are a staple in smoothie recipes. They add a lovely mellow sweetness and thick texture.
frozen peaches – pair perfectly with the citrus fruits and add a bit of sweetness.
cold water – did you know you can make a smoothie without milk? There is no need for milk in this recipe!
ice – optional but a great way to make this smoothie super thick, which is my favorite way to drink them.
Through trial and error I have discovered the perfect way to make a green smoothie that is both delicious and full of good for you ingredients.

This recipe sounds amazing and I love how vibrant it is! I tend not to make a lot of ice so I was wondering if I could omit the ice if I froze the oranges and lemon, or would that make the flavor too intense?

You could definitely omit the ice! It's personal preference really and totally optional. I like a more icy texture in my smoothies, but they will still be cold and creamy without it!
