Kale Smoothie & National Kale Day!

That’s right folks, its National Kale Day!

I wasn’t always a lover of Kale but in the last few years my husband has opened my eyes to the green super food. We’ve made kale chips, included it in our salads and smoothies too. Best of all the smoothie our 3-year-old loves!

Since its National Kale Day, I thought I would share some benefits of Kale:

And now for the smoothie recipe I came across months ago from All Things G & D:

A Month’s worth of Green Smoothies (only one day of preparation):

1 c. Kale (stems removed, coarsely chopped, firmly packed)
1/2 c. Parsley (loosely packed)
1 Granny Smith Apple
1 Banana
2 1/4 c. water


Changes I’ve made to this recipe:

  • I add a little greek coconut yogurt
  • And a little orange juice.

I also like the fact you can pre-package the smoothie in bags and take them out of the freezer as needed. Bonus for busy people!  And my toddler loves this smoothie.
