Peachy Kale Smoothie Recipe (Video)

Let's get some kale into that smoothie of yours!



Peachy Kale Smoothie
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1-2 leaves of organic kale (pull the leaves away from the stem and then put only the leaves in the smoothie)
  • 1 frozen banana
  • 5 slices of frozen organic peaches (3/4 cup)
  • a few chunks of frozen pineapple
Steps:
Blend and add more frozen fruit if still tastes "too green" for you. Enjoy!

Just a note...I'm 28 weeks pregnant here! Also, if you're wondering why I giggle a few times in this video, it's because my two chow chow dogs kept scratching my camera man (aka my husband) to go outside while we were trying to film this. Silly doggies...don't you know it's green smoothie time!

  1. When I was watching this video, I couldn't help but remember the time we made strawberry smoothies in your kitchen at your house in Timber Valley. Do you remember?? It wasn't mixing well, so we tried to push the berries down with a knife or a fork and it caught the blade and strawberry smoothie went everywhere!!! haha Anyways, this smoothie recipe sounds really good!! I've been doing the spinach thing but I think it might be time to upgrade to some kale.

  2. Ha Melanie! I totally remember that smoothie "explosion"...that was my first smoothie experinece and I think it scared me away for a few years-lol! I remember seeing that smoothie recipe in an Amercian Girl magazine and being so excited to try it out, who knew it would end up like that! ( :

    Glad you've been liking green smoothies, spinach is my fav too, but occasionally I try to get some "big girl greens" as I like to call them, like kale in there. I feel like I sweeten this one up enough with all the fruit that it takes away from the "super green taste". Let me know what you think of it! ( :
