If you’re lucky enough to romance someone with breakfast in bed…. do not bring kale.  Bring bacon.  Bacon is better in bed.  Kale is stupid in bed.  Kale is better if you’re a single lady that wants a smoothie.

How is that for a pro tip?

Believe it or not, kale and spinach blend up perfectly into a smoothie.

I know!  I totally had my doubts…. but it works.

I added pear and banana and almond milk too.  So super delicious.  It doesn’t taste like you’re drinking kale and spinach.  It tastes like your drinking good.

Ps.  I have spinach in my teeth.  True story.

  1. I love the green smoothie! I drink them for breakfast all the time, but your blender needs to be strong to really blend the kale into smoothie-ness. In addition to your mentioned ingredients I also add raw almond butter and flax meal so it keeps me full till lunch time and I use frozen strawberries instead of pear.

  2. You’re writing about bringing Kale into bed made me laugh…it would be one special type of man to appreciate that!!!
    Thanks for the delish recipe!

  3. you know what else is good?
    kale and spinach and a piece of banana and bunch of frozen pineapple. you don’t even need honey.
    i take one with me to work in the morning because at least i’ll know i’ve gotten some greens in my system before loading it up with butter and sugar and flour.
    not that there is anything wrong with butter and sugar flour.

  4. Pears are fantastic in green smoothies! One of my personal favorite combos is cucumber and pear. Throw it in this mix next time for a refreshing POP :)

  5. Is that the honey on the spoon? It kind of looks like peanut butter… I think it would be even better with peanut butter. YUM.

  6. Prettiest smoothie ever. I think it’s glowing! I guess you should bring it to a dance party with some black lights up in there. Oh, and I want to make it! And drink it!
