Kale, Pear & Orange Smoothie

OK, I admit I have been OD’ing it on the spinach lately as I have been having my  kale and spinach smoothie  pretty much every day!  Its hard because its just sooo good, easy to make and transport, and I love the fact that I am getting a boatload of veggies in one serving.  I am not a “sit down” lunch person, so having a lunch that is transportable is key!!  I have heard that having to much spinach is not a “good thing” as it has tons of iron.  With that being said,  I have been researching and trying some other green smoothie recipes that have just kale in it.  

Kale, Pear & Orange Smoothie:

  • 1 cup green grapes
  • 1 orange or tangerine, peeled
  • 1/2 Bartlett pear or any pear in season
  • 1 banana, fresh or frozen
  • 2 to 3 kale leaves, preferably lacinato as it’s less bitter tasting
  • 1/2 cup water or coconut water
  • ice cubes to taste
  • Optional: 2 tablespoons flax seed
Just throw the above ingredients into a high powered blender and blend away!
Bottoms up!!
