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!

I wanted to kick off the week with some green…

Something to keep ya healthy, and a little something to make ya wealthy!

Let’s start with my favorite way to kick off the day – a green smoothie.  Granted, it isn’t the most appetizing color, I will give you that.  But trust me, you can’t even taste the spinach!  It is sweet, fruity and a great way to get some veggies in the morning.  Give it a try, you won’t regret it!

1/2 cup ice

1 banana

Blend all ingredients together and enjoy!
