Pineapple Kale Banana Smoothie

I just love pineapple in a smoothie. Delish! Unfortunately this is not a make the night before smoothie. I’ve found that citrusy type fruits in smoothies make it taste bitter the next day. Also, you need to be a fan of kale to add this to your smoothie. It has a much stronger taste than spinach and you CAN taste it. If you still want the veggie nutrients then swap the kale for spinach.

Take the leaves off so that all you have left is the stalk.

Put the kale on the bottom and then add all other ingredients. Make sure you split your can of pineapple with pineapple juice down the middle. You need the liquid of the juice. Blend until smooth.
