Notes

What kind of kale is good in smoothies?

Traditional chopped kale is perfect for smoothies. Do not use lacinato kale.

Can you use Kale stems in smoothies?

I would not recommend kale stems in smoothies as it would make it taste bitter.

How Do you blend Kale Smoothly?

Utilizing a high speed blender such as a Blendtec, Ninja or Vitamix will ensure your kale is well blended into a smoothie.

I'm lactose intolerant. What can I use as a substitute for plain yogurt?

Just leave it out or try using a soy-based yogurt! If you want to add something else for fat/protein try almond or peanut butter.

How do I adjust the thickness or this smoothie?

Add more or less ice to reach desired thickness. The amount of water you will need will depend on whether you are working with fresh or frozen fruit. I typically add 1/2 cup water with the protein powder as a way to get the smoothie going in the blender but it is optional.
