Kale Green Smoothie Recipes

I recently wrote about the health benefits of using kale in your green smoothies.

Kale is a highly nutritious leafy green to use in smoothies and is an excellent source of plant-based calcium. Here are some additional recipes you can try:

To make these recipes, start by adding the liquid to your blender (I use a Vitamix), followed by the soft fruit. Add the greens to your blender last. Blend on high for 30 seconds or until the smoothie is creamy.

If you do not have kale on hand, you can substitute other greens such as spinach or chard using the same amount (ie: 2 cups of spinach instead of 2 cups kale).
