Berry, Cherry, and Kale Green Smoothie

I am on a green smoothie kick.  Kale and spinach has been going into the blender with fruit and the liquid of choice several times a week.  I make a big giant smoothie so it is more than one serving. Sometimes I drink part of it right away or put it in the fridge and using it for a base for post workout protein shakes.

There was a time when the green smoothie scared me and it took me some time to work up to trying one.  Turns out they are pretty tasty and the green part is not the dominant flavour your fruit is. Do not be afraid they taste good and are an easy way to get an extra dose or two of green leafy veggies in your life.

Green Smoothie of the day

3 cups green tea
3 cups kale, frozen
1 cup cherries
1 cup mixed berries
2 clementine, peeled and segmented

Toss in blender and blend for at least two minutes. Drink. This made about a quart and some.  Which will give me a protein shake base for the next few days.

  1. Yummy! It looks very healthy drink. The Cherry produces ten times more Melatonin (hormone) than any other raw fruit and is considered an excellent benefit in promoting health, aiding disease and more. Thanks for the nice recipe.
