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 [1], White Bean and Kale Soup [2] and White Bean with Kale Bruschetta [3] 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 [4].

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