Banana Kale Smoothie


Banana Kale Smoothie

As my garden flourishes, I try to find creative ways to use kale.  It is easy to grow and loaded with antioxidants, iron, vitamin C, calcium, and other nutrients.  Sometimes I want something a little different from sautes and soups, and this smoothie is very easy to make.  There are so many variations you can do on this recipe, using different fruits and ingredients (such as a Strawberry-Kale Smoothie).

    I have never tasted kale. I know I have seen it before in the store, but never had the chance. I didn’t realize it was so healthy for you. Is is palatable? Everything about this smoothie looks great!
