There are loads of kale recipes that I don’t want to try. But the funny thing about getting kale EVERY WEEK is that eventually, you’re probably going to try them. Such was the case today. I vaguely remembered reading a recipe for a kale smoothie on one of my CSA newsletters, and so I attempted to approximate what I remembered.
Let’s be perfectly clear. This is not going to work as a strategy for getting through the kale unless you are a smoothie-a-day-type person, and also, probably, unless you have a decently powerful blender. It was a fun little experiment nonetheless. Somehow, it managed to taste both surprisingly non-kale-like, and kale-y. Despite this, I enjoyed it.
- 1 banana
- 8 oz orange juice
- handful frozen mango chunks
- 5 leaves kale, stems removed
- 4 oz water
Blend. If your blender is crap like mine, you will probably have to add the kale in batches. Makes 16 oz, but as far as I am concerned, that’s 2 servings.
