So, I have to say that I’ve finally jumped on the kale bandwagon. It has taken me a while to try it out and cook with this uber nutritious leafy green. However, I’ve come to really enjoy the flavors and texture it adds to just about anything you’re making. The other day I tried adding it to a smoothie and wow – consider my socks knocked off!!

When the kale is paired with fruits like banana, kiwi and pineapple, it creates the most amazing smoothie! The flavors are primarily sweet and tropical from the banana and pineapple, and with a little bit of orange juice, you don’t need any additional sweeteners. In keeping with the “green machine” theme, I’ve topped the smoothie with nutritious and delicious pistachios for a complimentary crunch!
