Fruit-Kale Smoothie


2-3 stalks green kale including stem or 1-2 handfuls baby red kale

3-4 T honey or ½ banana, 1 cup strawberries

1 ½ cups liquid such as yogurt, almond milk, milk, fruit juice

Optional: Ice, cinnamon, nutmeg, pineapple, or other fruit


Put liquid ingredients in blender, add kale, blend. Add other ingredients, blend 1 min. If it isn’t blending, add more liquid and pulse blender. Many blenders will handle a whole stalk of kale, but If yours doesn’t, chop it coarsely first. Yogurt gives the smoothie protein. Kale is high in antioxidants, vitamins A, C, and K. To hide the kale taste, add more fruit and liquid. If this recipe is too sweet for you, skip the banana/honey. Makes 2 small smoothies.
