Helloooo and happy Tuesday! Did you have a wonderful Mother’s Day weekend? We had a great weekend with my mom. She came to visit us from Friday thru Sunday. We took her out, we introduced her to all of our neighbor friends and hung out with them for a bit and I helped her do some things on her new laptop. I also made her this tropical kale smoothie for breakfast Saturday morning. She really enjoyed it. ♥︎

This smoothie is full of healthy kale. I used a higher ratio of kale to pineapple and mango because I didn’t want to overload the smoothie with too much sugar. The pineapple and mango give it a subtle sweetness. If you don’t like the taste of kale, you may want to add more pineapple and mango but trust me, it’s good as is, especially if you don’t have a huge sweet tooth!

I used plain grassfed yogurt from Trader Joe’s in this smoothie but you can easily make this smoothie vegan by using coconut or soy yogurt. If I were to make it vegan, I’d go for the coconut yogurt, considering this smoothie is a tropical smoothie. :)
