Green Smoothies

image Green smoothies are all the rage right now. I recently made my first one and was immediately hooked! The “green” part comes from anything green (like raw kale, spinach, parsley or other greens). Then you add an assortment of fruit and blend it all together in a blender. This is a great way to get the incredible benefits of raw greens in a tasty way. Now I have a use for all that kale we’ve been getting from the farm!

The beauty of green smoothies is that you can make them with just about anything! Experiment with different combinations of fruit/greens. Just to give you an example, here’s the recipe I’ve been using (this is just what I had on hand):

Raw, de-veined Kale
Pineapple juice
1 Peach
2 Bananas
1 c. blueberries (made the smoothie not quite as bright green but still tasty!)

  • It tastes so much better than it looks! Laura made me one while I was visiting her, and it was really good! Now that I’m home, I think I’ll have one for lunch.
