Like I mentioned in my last post, I have been doing a cleanse; the Crazy Sexy Cleanse which recommends lots of juicing and smoothie making. I’m not complaining though—it is just as easy to jump out of bed blend together a smoothie as it is to brew a cup of coffee.
This has been my regular go-to smoothie. It has kale in it.
But, you can’t taste it. It blends up nicely and just adds a bit of texture.
I have been making it for the kids and they are drinking it. I don’t try to hide the fact that there are veggies in here–and they get a kick out of drinking a kale smoothie–that tastes wonderful.
It feels kind of silly to even include a recipe for this–it is so simple and can be adapted in many ways–but just in case you aren’t sure how to start, here is my version:
Fruit and Kale Smoothie
1 ripe banana
handful of frozen blueberries or strawberries
1/2 cup almond milk
1/2 cup water
2 leaves of kale, ribbed and torn into pieces
agave nectar (optional)
Add all ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth. If your blender is having a tough time, add a little more water or almond milk. Give it a taste and add a bit of agave nectar if you feel it needs a bit more sweetness.
