Healthy Friday - Kale Smoothie

I can't imagine any response to this recipe other than, "Yes, please give me another serving of that smoothie that looks like a combination of Nickelodeon slime and my own boogers!"  This booger-colored glass of goodness isn't just weird to look at, it is packed with protein, dietary fiber, and essential amino acids!  Luckily it tastes delicious too.

Note: this recipe takes a bit of prepping in advance.  Several items will need to be frozen, indicated below.  If you are a huge kale smoothie fan, the Spatularettes suggest freezing several baggies of blanched kale.  That way Healthy Friday will be a cinch!

-1 banana
-1 cup of kale, chopped, blanched, and then frozen
-1 6 oz mango Greek yogurt, frozen
-1/4 cup of pineapple (fresh or from the can is best, but frozen will blend as well)

1. Dump everything into your blender.
2. Blend.
3. Enjoy your healthy Friday!

Harrison Ford loves his smoothie so much, he dumped it on himself.  Who can blame him?!
