Kale Smoothie Recipe That Actually Tastes Good

Kale Smoothie Recipe that Actually Tastes Good

Did you ever find a Kale Smoothie Recipe that actually tastes good?  Did you ever even try?  Do you know about the benefits of Kale?  I certainly didn’t until recently but kept hearing things like “Kale is a Superfood”   So I went online to find out why.  According to WebMD Kale offers these benefits:

  • 33 Calories per cup with 206% Vitamin A, 134% Vitamin C, and 684% Vitamin K.
  • Rich in lutein and zeaxanthin compounds promoting eye health.
  • Anti-Cancer health benefits

So I decided it was time to try it.  YUCCCCCCCCCKKKKKK!!  Too bitter for my taste buds.  So how was I to get the benefits of Kale without having to hold my nose to ingest it?  SMOOTHIE!!!  But just throwing in Kale with your other smoothie ingredients won’t work well because it tends to leave chunks in the mix.  And who wants that?  So I give you my own recipe and with the exception of ice, all the ingredients are shown in the picture below.

Kale Smoothie Recipe Ingredients


  • 1 – 1  1/2 cups Kale pulled off the stem
  • 1 cup Almond Milk (I prefer Blue Diamond Unsweetened as it only has 30 Calories)  You can substitute milk but refer to the WebMD article for those with calcium absorption issues.
  • 4-5 Strawberries
  • 1 – Banana
  • 2-4 Ice Cubes


  1. Put only Kale and Almond Milk in Blender and blend until smooth.
  2. Add banana and strawberries and again blend until smooth
  3. Add ice and blend once more until smooth
  4. Drink up!!

Trust me that all you taste is the banana and the strawberry.  No bitterness.  You are all welcome for making sure you live long healthy lives so you can keep coming back so my site stats stay up.  🙂

    Are you trying to healthify us or something?? It sounds pretty good. Other than the kale stuff.

  2. David Hurley says:

    Mmmm . . . kale. The other ingredients sure make it worth while.

  3. It’s a whale of a kale!

  4. lisleman says:

    I’ve had a smoothie with kale before. Both my wife and daughter have made them. Most often we have fruit smoothies. But what the kale? a recipe on a cartoon blog?? What’s next? Legal advice?

  5. Tony McGurk says:

    I’ve never ever tried Kale but it sounds like it’s in the brussel sprout’s league of extroadinary yucky gentlemen.

  6. Tony McGurk says:

    You forgot to put in the chocolate.

  7. Bill Murphy says:

    I love Kale. I’ve even eaten it raw in a salad. I usually saute Kale with oil and garlic. Some people add a dash of wine vinegar at the end to cut the bitterness. I’ve also baked them like chips!
    I’ll be trying your recipe soon. I have a Vitamix (frigg’n thing cost more than my stove) and I make smoothies often. 😉

    If you want to try a Brussels sprout recipe, look at these two.
    http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/tyler-florence/blanched-brussels-sprouts-with-chestnuts-recipe.html (I make these for the holidays)
    http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/ina-garten/roasted-brussels-sprouts-recipe2.html (This is usually how I make them)
    I tried to push these recipes onto Tony but he was having none of it! 😛

    • Tony McGurk says:

      Nope Bill, none of it for me. Sprouts shall not pass my lips!!!

    • I am with Tony on this. I wouldn’t want to waste a bunch of food on the off chance that I might not hate it!! haha

    • jynksie says:

      I’m more a Paula Deen fan… if it lacks butter, why bother? [smirk]

      • Does the scale agree?

        • jynksie says:

          Yes! I dont torture myself by omitting the foods I enjoy that aren’t exactly the poster meal for good health, I just eat smaller portions of them. There was a time I could down an entire rack of ribs… not knowing a serving is merely 4 ribs on the rack. I just eat 4 ribs on the rack. Portion control allows you eat everything. [slurp]

  8. I’m still fighting the kale. I know I should try it. I know it is good for me. But, unfortunately I know I just can’t bring myself to try it.

  9. Comedy Plus says:

    Well I hope it’s okay with you that I don’t try this. I think I’ll run to McDonald’s a get a milkshake. That would taste good. I’m just saying.

    Have a fabulous day. 🙂

  10. jynksie says:

    I’d rather gag on a magot and get stabbed w/ a pitchfork, than even attempt to want this concoction!! [blech]

    Now, if you’ll excuse me, there’s a carton of ice cream, w/ a huge amount of butterfat in it, calling my name!

  11. Dave says:

    Sounds good… but I have always been afraid to put green stuff in with my fruit, except for loose leaf organic green tea (not too much of that otherwise one will feel ill from the caffeine).

    My wife and I started following the 8 Simple Nutrition Rules at Strong Lifts. This has helped stabilize my blood sugar so I’m not constantly shoveling high carb desserts into my mouth.

    Thank you for inviting us into your home. Nice counter top 🙂

  12. Joseph says:

    I eat kale in my salad sometimes. It’s good! But I still haven’t built up the courage to try vegetables in a fruit smoothie. I’m with Dave on this: I like to keep the fruits and veggies separate.

  13. Perk says:

    It’s not easy being green.

  14. Gruhn says:

    Maybe with a lot of chocolate in there and some ice cream.

  15. Mike W says:

    Cartoons plus recipes on how to make yuck muck taste good. Well. Got to be a money maker there somewhere.

  16. Nef says:

    I like to make smoothies with spinach. I don’t know how it compares with Kale on the nutritional front, but my sources tell me is very healthy. I place one large handful of spinach, then a few handfuls of frozen fruit (I don’t use ice), some type of seed (favorite is chia) a bit of cinnamon and half a cup of milk (sometimes yoghurt). Then you add water until the fruit is covered, and blend.

    I usually add a bit of Stevia to sweeten the deal.

  17. benzeknees says:

    Maybe a little white rum or vodka with it?

  18. frigginloon says:

    Oh for crying out loud Bearman, just put some vegemite on the kale for a taste sensation 😉

  19. Mark Stokes says:

    Chunks in the mix doesn’t sound very appetizing! Thanks for the recipe, I’ll have to try it.

  20. Nate Fakes says:

    I might actually try that. I have a smoothie every morning (kale-free) and swear by them.
