Combined with bananas, kiwi, milk and honey, this Kale Smoothie is surprisingly delicious and SO good for you!
Clearly, I’m continuing with the green this week. And the healthy!
We had Asparagus on Monday and today we’re having Kale. Don’t walk away! I promise, this smoothie is amazing!
But, first I need to share this bit with you!
I met up with a high school friend the other day and she has a daughter who is about to go to college. Umm. WHAT?! Holy hell! How did that happen?!
Seriously, that threw me off a bit. My oldest is 4-years old and loves to play dress-up. Her oldest is about to meet up with beer bongs!
Again. What the what?! We’re only 30-something. (ok. 36.) Apparently, she decided to pop out the kids just as she turned 18.
Me, on the other hand? At that age?? I was like, “Where da party at?!?”. “I’m failing Econ!!!”. “Should I major in Psych or Journalism?!”. “He dumped me!! WAAAAAAH!”. That was 18-year old me.
And that’s my story. I’m still shocked.
In other news. This is like the thousandth recipe for a mash up of fruits + milk + ice that I now have on zee bloggy. Mango Banana, Pomegranate Yogurt, Strawberry Smoothie… I happen to really like fruits (and this time, veggies) in liquid form.
Really, though. This Kale Smoothie is much different than those other ones. (I have no clue what those other ones are…I just like saying that. I’m pretty sure those other ones taste just as good as this, but let’s just roll with it, m’kay?)
The depth of flavor in this smoothie is… deep? I mean, it’s beyond. Or, BEYOND! It’s sweet, yes, and very refreshing, of course. No, it does not taste like dirt and there is not an ounce of bitterness in this smoothie. Scouts honor. Black bananas and honey took over any earthy, bittery taste that results from kale.
I’m not a superfan of the superfood, Kale, but throw it in a blender, and I’m game. I love the extra layer of flavor that it adds to my smoothies.
Oh. Yes. It can also fight cancer.
So. You know. Obviously, it’s totally worth it. Now, go make it.
