Green Smoothie (Dairy-Free)

I’ve been seeing them everywhere lately, so I decided it was time to try a green smoothie. I had some leftover kale after last week’s fiesta that featured White Beans with Kale, White Bean and Kale Soup and White Bean with Kale Bruschetta so it seemed like the perfect time.

I promise we’ll take a little break from kale after this.

This is not a smoothie in the traditional sense – no yogurt, no milk, no dairy of any kind. It tastes herby and earthy with just a hint of citrus. The Grillmaster and I enjoyed it, but our tastebuds were a bit confused at first. If this isn’t your thing, you might prefer Spinach Smoothie with Apples and Grapes.

Have you ever tried a green smoothie? What was in yours?

    Hmm this sounds interesting, but good. I think I will try this for breakfasts next week. The only green smoothies I’ve ever made is just my regular (strawberry, banana, OJ, and yogurt) with a handful of fresh spinach.

    Like the looks of that! Grapes (frozen or not) or pears would be good in there, too, and add a touch of sweetness without adding too much sugar. We have declared the first week of April as Greens Smoothie Week, and will share this link on our Facebook then. Thanks!

    I make green smoothies constantly – such a quick and easy way to get more greens in your diet! I also pre-puree kale and freeze it in ice cube trays so I have greens at the ready when I don’t have fresh. I add pear puree (my company Ontario’s Own makes it so I always have lots) for that extra sweetness.
