  • Cook's Note:
  • It's helpful to freeze the banana (depending on what kind of blender you have, freeze the avocado too) in chunks so it'll make the drink cooler.

Only good things to say about this one! I made it exactly as written and also froze my banana in chunks. I also stuck my avocado in the fridge before making it. This made a HUGE serving - 3 cups of deliciousness all to myself! It could easily be split for 2 people though, but very filling as a meal for 1. I couldn't taste the cayenne, so I might add slightly more next time, but either way, this doesn't make or break the smoothie. Very healthy! I might even add in more kale next time too.

It tasted better than I expected, but the kale was too strong. I don't think I would make it again.

So good! I drink one of these at least twice a month.

I tried this recipe and I loved it. To make it a little figure friendly. I decided to just use Kale and Banana, along with some whey protein powder from the health foods store, and water instead of coconut water. This is what I drink after a work out. I love how sweet the banana makes it without adding artificial sweeteners, and the Kale has such a fresh taste, it may not look pretty but it certainly is a really great pick me up after a hard workout.

Really good! I added a few ice cubes to make it a bit cooler and it was great!

Good recipe. Used unsweetened almond milk instead of coconut water, can out bit bitter. Added 2 small apples and 1 extra banana, which helped. Added 2 scoops vanilla protein powder, which made it too sweet. Will try next time with unflavored protein powder.
