Add all ingredients in the blender. Note: add wet ingredients first for easier blending.
Mix everything at high speed until you get a smooth silky texture.
If the smoothie is too thick, add a little more liquid – milk or water. Blend again until everything is well combined.
Taste the smoothie and add additional sweetener if the smoothie is not sweet enough to your taste.
Transfer the smoothie into a smoothie glass.
ADD TOPPINGS: I used hemp seeds and goji berries. Be creative here and add toppings you like.

You can use any plant-based milk here. Coconut milk is amazing here.
Cow's milk won't work here in terms of the flavor.
You can substitute kale with any dark leafy green like spinach, or Swiss chard.
You can substitute pineapple with mango.
Substitute hemp seeds with ground flax seeds or chia seeds (it will add more proteins and Omega-3's).
Don't substitute fresh ginger with ground ginger powder. It won't work!
Make it without banana: Substitute banana with ½ avocado.Make it protein-packed: Add a scoop of vanilla protein powder. Make it more energizing and nutritious: Add in a tablespoon of nut butter.Make it vegan: Use plant-based milk.Store in a glass jar with a lid or shaker and keep refrigerated for up to one day.
