About Me

My photo
Style Destino is my personal style space bout cruelty-free and vegetarian style. Fashion is not above someone's life and it is irresponsible when someone makes a fashion choice that involves taking a poor animal's life. I believe in style that has a conscience. We are in 21st century where technology has advanced immensely, there are myriad options available and any person with a desire can make things happen. So it is sheer selfishness and irresponsible behaviour when people make unethical fashion choices. Through StyleDestino I share everything cruelty-free and ethical in my style. I do not use any handbags, shoes or accessories made from leather (animal skin), the make-up I use is also vegetarian and cruelty free. Luxury and compassion can coexist stylishly and Style Destino is an attempt to prove just that. Vegan fashion is not about dowdy clothes, cheap bags, or tawdry shoes. I can just easily be vegan and trot in my Olsen heels, sporting a Stella McCartney luxurious vegan handbag while showing off my red lips painted with OCC lip tar!! I travel the world around and never find dearth of stylish, high quality vegetarian fashion.

Kale & Pineapple Smoothie | Delicious Green Smoothie Recipes

Kale and Pineapple Smoothie | Delicious Green Smoothie Recipes

A green smoothie doesn't have to taste .... like green. With the right ingredients you can actually get your daily dose of healthy veggies without compromising on the taste with a glass of delicious green smoothie.

You'd know by now that smoothies are my go-to health drink, which I make sure to have every morning. Not only are they packed with nutrients, with the right ingredients they taste delicious, are super easy to make, keeps me energized all-day long and make for the perfect breakfast that keeps me satiated until lunch.

With thousands of trials and errors, I've learnt the secret to making delicious smoothies - from green smoothies to tropical delights to berry and chocolate treats.

On most days my post-workout meal includes a glass of green smoothie and here's one of my favorite - Kale & Pineapple Smoothie. I play around with different combinations in the Kale & Pineapple Smoothie itself depending on my mood and weather.

I N G R E D I E N T S 
1 cup pineapple chunks 
5 long kale leaves stems
1 cup coconut water
1 deseeded whole orange
1 teaspoon grated ginger (optional, I prefer it during winter or to resolve digestion issues)
Pinch of sea salt

D I R E C T I O N S 
Wash kale leaves with warm water and make sure its clean. 
Throw in all the ingredients in a high speed blender whip it well and serve fresh

Cook time: 7 minutes

This green smoothie is packed with healthy ingredients - 
  • Kale that is known as a nutritional powerhouse and is great for detoxification and weight loss, helps strenghten immune system, is rich source of calcium beta carotene, vitamin K, vitamin C, helps in healthier skin, hair and nails and helps fights diseases as it is good source of vitamin K, folic acid and B6
  • Pineapple not only adds an amazing sweet taste to this smoothie but also has digestive and anti-inflammatory benefits, gives immune support and provides you a Vitamin C boost.
  • Ginger adds a nice spicy flavor to your green smoothie when you need it and must be added when you have any stomach issues, want help with morning sickness, muscular pain or soreness or want to fight cold or flu. Ginger has lots of medicinal properties to keep you healthy and strong
  • Orange is rich in Vitamin C and adds a nice flavor to the smoothie in addition to giving it a nutritional boost. You can also choose coconut water (fat and cholesterol free and super rich in calcium and potassium) as it is also great for health and lends green smoothies a nice flavor.
For a creamy and delicious green smoothie, take off the ginger and sea salt and throw in a small avocado in the mix. It tastes super yummy! You can also add dates to make it extra sweet.

To keep things simple I sometimes use just kale, pineapple and orange and if need an extra green boost add spinach leaves in the mix. This green smoothie tastes delicious too and is packed with nutrients.

So what's the secret to making a delicious green smoothie?
Adding all the veggies in the mix may not appeal to everyone's taste buds so the best way to get yourself and your family to eat the kale, spinach and other greens is to mix them with sweet yet fibrous and nutritious fruits like apple, banana and pineapple and blend it with orange to add the nice combo to tangy and sweet and the great citrus flavor.

Avocado is great way to make it creamy and if you need to change things up, then add cinnamon in the concoction. Not only is it super good for health, but also adds amazing flavor. Goes best with creamy smoothie.

One rule of food pairing is that never pair melons with other fruits in a smoothie as they are not good on your stomach when fixed with other things.
