Cherry, Mango, Kale Smoothie


Green smoothies are super healthy for you, and can be super delicious too. The dark cherries in this recipe really compliment the other fruit flavors with the dark green flavor of the kale. I love this combination. It's a great way to get your "green" on. Enjoy!

Ingredients.
juice from 3 oranges
1 large, ripe, peeled banana
4 pitted Medjool dates

coconut water (add enough for desired thickness)
2-4 ice cubes
