Sorry I use my hands as measuring cups. I'll try to find more accurate measurements next time I make this bad boy!
This really is so easy and it takes no time at all to prepare. When you do your meal prep, you could have the kale and spinach measured / cut / washed in a tupperware so that all you really have to do is grab your lemon, coconut water and frozen mango.
A few things to keep in mind:
The greens don't have to be organic
I use curly kale or tuscan kale
The frozen mango is what makes the smoothie really thick and creamy. If you want an even creamier smoothie, add 1/2 an avocado
Why this smoothie:
Thanks to Joe Rogan's podcast, we discovered Found My Fitness by Dr. Rhonda Patrick. Rhonda is so fun to listen to and has studied the magical powers of sulforaphane. Sulforaphane is naturally produced when cruciferous vegetables are damaged (chewed, cut, blended). It's a cancer fighter, it helps improve gut health, enhances brain function, and some evidence suggest it helps to combat depression.
Pretty amazing stuff.
Other foods that contain sulforaphane are: brussels sprouts, collard greens, broccoli, cabbage, mustard greens, cauliflower, turnip, bok choy, watercress, radish and broccoli raab. I will share more sulforaphane enriched smoothies over the next few weeks.
If you like watching YOUTUBE, then you have to see this.

I think eating well is a form of self-respect, and that's evident in my recipes.
