This dark green, luscious shake is my go to drink when I need a little protein pick me up.
To me, the flavor of the kale is not that pronounced, what comes through is the creamy richness of the protein powder with the tart sweetness of the orange, thereby forming a yummy gluten-free, dairy-free creamsicle experience in a glass. Enjoy!
1 cup kale, chopped
1 whole orange, peeled and chopped
¼ cup water
1 scoop Frank Zane Egg White Protein Powder (or protein powder of your choice)
1 cup ice cubes
- In a vitamix combine kale, orange, water and puree on high speed
- Blend in protein powder, then ice cubes
- Serve in a pretty glass
