  1. Peel and chop the banana. Rinse and chop the kale. Add all the ingredients for the smoothie except the chocolate chips in a blender and blend everything until smooth. Taste and adjust the quantity of maple syrup according to your preferences.

Notes

  1. You can use fresh or frozen banana to make this smoothie. However I recommend frozen banana for a thicker and fresher result. To freeze your bananas, peel and slice them before storing in a freezer bag or container, and place in the freezer.
  2. You can also prepare the smoothie and place in the fridge for about 30 minutes to 1 hour to cool, or add a handful of ice cubes.
