Kale, Pineapple & Banana “Tropical” Protein Smoothie

I bought a juicer recently, but to be honest, I was quite disappointed by all the wasted veggies & fruit pulp it made (especially if you juice kale since what liquid does kale make anyway!).

As a result I started googling “kale smoothies” in hopes to find a way to salvage the wasted kale and after some trial and error I found an amazing recipe on Butter and Sugar for a tropical kale smoothie.  I took this recipe, made a few alterations (like adding in protein powder) and the result… success!
