Green Smoothie

Kale

I have grown to love kale.   I thought it was a bit bitter when I first started cooking with it a few years ago, .  I’ve found that the moment lemon juice is added, that bitterness isn’t so dramatic.  Kale is full of all things good for your body. . .water, vitamins, fiber.  I prefer the ”Dino” variety, but also like the ”Curly” kind.
My first introduction to kale was when my girlfriend, Mia, got me into drinking green smoothies. I have to admit that I don’t LOVE green smoothies. . .I tolerate them because I know they are good for me, especially the day after I’ve indulged too much.   I have a Vitamix and it is the king of all blenders. . .the thing blends anything.
