I’ve been drinking Odwalla’s Superfood for years, so I’m no stranger to green drinks. But I didn’t think to make my own until I saw a green smoothie on VeganTickles blog awhile back. With that bright green color, I’ve been meaning to try it and finally got around to it.
I made some changes to the recipe – I used soymilk instead of water and grapes instead of the pineapple because that’s what I had in the fridge. It came out delicious, taste just like a smoothie.
I know some people make a yucky face when they see the green. Maybe they think it tastes like green vegetables. It doesn’t.
It’s very light and refreshing and very nutritious. The trick is to make sure you have enough of the other ingredients so you don’t have a strong vegetable taste.
Would you be more willing to try it if it was in a funny green cup? Yes, yes?
Makes about 2 2/3 cups
2 bananas, sliced into rounds and frozen
4 green kale leaves
1 cup soymilk
1/2 cup grapes
Separate the kale leaves from the stem, wash and tear into smaller pieces. Combine everything in a blender. Blend until smooth.
