I'm obsessed with green smoothies lately, but am often turned off by their grassy, "green" flavor. I whipped up this little concoction this morning for breakfast, and boy was I pleasantly surprised! The fruit does a great job of cutting through the bitterness of the kale, and in fact you can barely taste the kale at all. Frosty, sweet, and yummy!
2 cups rinsed, chopped kale, tough stalks removed
1 frozen banana (I keep some peeled and frozen 'nanas on hand for this very occasion)
1 mango, chopped
1 kiwi, peeled
about ½ cup crushed ice
agave nectar to taste (I used about ½ tablespoon)
Add all ingredients to your blender, and blend until smooth. Pour into your favorite glass, add a straw, and enjoy!
