Kale Apple Smoothie

I came across this delicious photo and recipe for a kale apple smoothie on realsimple.com but created a 'what I had in the kitchen' rendition this morning. It was very easy.

Quick Kale Smoothie

  • About 1 cup of kale leaves removed from stalk
  • 1 apple slightly peeled and cubed
  • Remnants of a left over fruit salad (mainly pineapple)
  • 1/2 c. water (enough to blend)

Mix and blend until as smooth as possible. Consistency is like thin apple sauce, so drinking through a straw is more appealing.

I have a good feeling that you could basically blend anything with kale like a pear or a plum and achieve a delicious and healthy smoothie.

Bonus, David liked it too.
