Kale Mango Smoothie, gluten-free vegan

Kale Mango Smoothie Feat

Did you know Make Dinner Matter isn’t just about recipes? There are lengthy guides to various holidays and business recommendations too! This smoothie is my at-home version of a local South Block Juice Co. favorite (sans the plastic container + eight dollar price tag). It is great, it’s green, it’s easy!

Having a to-go option, that isn’t a packaged bar, gives the usual allergy-friendly snacks a nutritious step-up: the fresh spinach keeps it creamy, the coconut water gives that extra flavor that often goes missing in home-creations, and the almond milk gives it lasting satiety. This isn’t to say keeping a Kind bar in your bag/car is a forbidden practice: quite the opposite! Adding a fresh blend like the one here can make that bar feel like a meal; warding off future hanger meltdowns or potentially risky food choices made out of desperation (“No, no I’m sure it’ll be ok…” is usually a telltale sign). Yes, it can feel out of the norm to eat an extra mid-day snack or a pre-dinner one, especially when going to meet other people at a restaurant or bar. But part of making food-allergic life easier, and more fun, means honoring hunger when it strikes and being prepared for when it will.


Notes: I find this smoothie best enjoyed day-of, as I find with most smoothies.
