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.
