Kale Berry Smoothie

I used to be afraid of kale. I definitely used to be afraid of the idea of putting greens in drinks. I like green foods, but there is just something about green liquids that make me want to run in the other direction.

It’s a good thing I changed my mind about kale. It’s not just fantastically healthful; it’s extremely versatile. I eat it in everything now, from soups to pasta to simply sauteed for a side dish. And even, yes, in smoothies.

As you can see, these smoothies aren’t green, which helps get my entire family past the weird factor and on their way to drinking up a treat. But don’t be fooled – each smoothie has two cups of raw kale, giving you lots of potassium, calcium, iron, and vitamins A and C. Plus, the sweetness comes from the fruit, not from the added sugar many smoothie businesses sneak in.

A kale berry smoothie a day keeps the doctor away? Well, it couldn’t hurt.
