I wanted to share my new favorite fruit blend! I've done something similar using strawberries, spinach, and bananas. But this was my first time switching out spinach for kale, and I LOVED the results! I'm hoping to make fruit blends for breakfast at least twice a week. Normally, I have coffee, a bottle of water, and some piece of fruit.
I used one banana, a handful of kale, and a handful of strawberries. I rinsed the strawberries and kale before using them.
I included a few ice cubes for moisture and to make the drink cold.
The final result is a forest green color with some specks of red from the strawberries. It's the perfect blend of flavors and sweetness. I could drink this blend every single day. It also didn't leave my teeth stained like some fruit mixes (with blueberries, spinach, blackberries, etc.) often do. This also kept me full until lunchtime.
And I've also used the kale in other ways this week.
I sautéed the kale in a little olive oil with onions, mushrooms, tomatoes, black pepper, and curry powder.
I aso blended arugula and kale for this yummy salad. The salad was dressed in vinaigrette dressing and included cheddar cheese, tomatoes, strawberries, mushrooms, and a veggie burger!
What's your favorite fruit/veggie smoothie? I'm always looking for new recipes to try!
