Strawberry Kale Smoothie

 

Strawberry Kale Smoothie

I am always looking for creative ways to use kale from the garden.  It is easy to grow and loaded with antioxidants, iron, vitamin C, calcium, and other nutrients.  This smoothie is very easy to make, and even my 6 year old loves it!  This is a nice change from savory kale recipes, and you can really be creative with this smoothie – experiment with different fruits.

Ingredients:

1 cup almond milk or coconut milk, or a combination of milk/vanilla yogurt

1-2 cups kale

approximately half dozen strawberries

(Makes one smoothie)

Kale Smoothie

Directions:

Wash the kale and remove the stems.

Wash the strawberries, remove tops, and cut up the strawberries.

Add the milk/yogurt and blend until smooth.

Optional – add a dash of sugar.

Enjoy!

    I didn’t realize how healthy kale was for you until I read an article lately. I have never tried it before, I think I have been turned off by its looks to be honest. But I love smoothies and the strawberries and coconut in this one surely add enough flavor and sweetness for even me! Thank you so much for all of your wonderful posts. I don’t comment on all of them, but they are great!
