Do you, like Marilou, Jacinthe René and Reese Witherspoon, love those popular green smoothies? Yes, but only if they don’t taste like raw vegetables? Well, our green smoothie is made with pineapple and mango to balance with kale’s strong taste (or any other vegetable you might want to use). This healthy smoothie is not only for raw foodists or live food fanatics: it’s a great breakfast or snack for anyone.
We also use maca, a tuber related to radish and land cress, which is great for health. Maca roots can be eaten fresh or dried for their nutritional benefits. Their delicate taste reminds us of malt. They also have caramel, coffee and hazelnut flavours. Peruvians and some other people even consume more than 500 g of maca daily, either in its sweet-potato-like form or dried.
Try maca powder in this tropikale (yes, a kale pun) and vitamin-rich green smoothie! With its generous portion of exotic fruits and vegetables, this smoothie is super good for your health!
SIMPLY DELICIOUS : Did you know you could make kale chips? Not only is it nutritious, it’s also delicious!
Blend all the ingredients until smooth and homogeneous* (Psst! A powerful blender will help you get a smooth texture, silky even.)
*For a creamy texture, add some fresh banana and Greek yogurt.
For 2 small smoothies, pour into two cute cups or glasses. You could also make a smoothie bowl and add strawberries, chia seeds, and nuts of your choice on top.
You can find maca powder in specialty food stores or in the natural products section of some supermarkets. You can also order some online here.
Maca makes all the difference in this smoothie recipe!
