Kale Green Smoothie Recipe

I absolutely love whipping up a green smoothie in the morning. It helps me feel energized and ready to tackle the day.

One of my favorite greens to use is curly kale. There are other types of kale, but I've found some of them to be too bitter. In general kale is one of the most nutrient-rich greens around and I've found the bitterness often associated with it is easily masked with bananas.

Kale Smoothie Recipe

2 large leaves curly kale, main stems removed
2 bananas
1 cup plain yogurt (or non-dairy equivalent)
1 cup milk (or non-dairy equivalent)
honey or other sweetener to taste (it doesn't need much)

Combine all ingredients in a blender and puree until nice and smooth.

The great thing about smoothies is that they're totally customizable to your personal preferences. What kind of smoothies do you like to make?
