Green smoothies.  I can’t speak for your neck of the woods, but can tell you they are all the rage here in LA.  You can hardly walk down the street in Hollywood without someone carrying a plastic cup and sipping something green.

Now, I am all for “eating your greens” but I am totally unwilling to drink the equivalent of a blended salad.  If I am going to have a green smoothie, it has to taste good!  That’s why I couldn’t believe it the first time I tried this recipe.  Let me show you how to make a kale smoothie…without tasting the kale!

This green smoothie may look like health food, but it tastes like a milkshake – I promise!

There are so many different kinds of kale to choose from.  For the purpose of this recipe, I decided to use Dino or Tuscan Kale.  It tends to be a bit milder than other kales.  However, feel free to use your favorite kale or even spinach in this recipe.  Now, take a peek at my ‘how-to’ video.

Like I said, you really can use your favorite milk in this recipe.  I am a big fan of dairy milk, but I find that almond milk seems to blend better in this particular smoothie.  Plus it has a subtle nutty flavor and a bit of sweetness that adds to the flavor of the drink.  In the end, use your favorite milk:  soy, almond, dairy, hemp, oat, rice, etc..!
