Banana Orange Kale Smoothie: Very “Green”!

Banana Orange Kale Smoothie

Kale is a popular smoothie ingredient but its taste can be too harsh for some. In this banana orange kale smoothie recipe the bold taste of the kale is blended with both oranges and bananas to produce a very smooth tasting and satisfying “green” smoothie.

And, in case you were wondering about the nutritional aspect of kale, a single cup of cooked kale offers a whole bunch of value. Visit this link to the Kale page at whfoods.org for the whole story.

Now to the recipe:

  • 2 previously frozen bananas, peeled and sliced (Peel and slice BEFORE freezing!)
  • 1 whole orange, peeled
  • 1 cup shredded kale (probably about one leaf)
  • 1/2 cup filtered water
  • 1 Tbsp. Chia Seed or Flax seed (optional)
