Kale Spinach and Pear Smoothie

IMG_4475

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.
