Happy Valentine’s Day, everyone!
In my never-ending quest to A. come up with new kale smoothie recipes, and 2. figure out how to integrate strawberries into them, I have happened upon a good combination with this one.
Introducing: The Creamy Cherry Strawberry kale smoothie! Featuring garden-fresh kale (from my kale garden).
This is not your normal strawberries’n’cream flavor combination; this one is deeper and more interesting, with a tart edge. It is also 100% healthy and will boost your energy levels and brighten your day.
Anyway I hope you like it, and as always keep those suggestions coming – I love to hear what you guys are thinking, and/or how I could make this site more helpful to you.
|Creamy Cherry Strawberry Kale Smoothie|| || |
- ½ cup frozen cherries
- ½ cup frozen strawberries

- 1 leaf kale
- (optional) 1 tsp hemp oil
- (optional) 1 tsp flax seed oil
- 1 large tbsp greek yogurt

Good morning! Today I’m gonna show you how to make a creamy, cherry-strawberry kale smoothie, using fresh kale from my garden (which I’m going to post about later).
I’ve also got a brand-new blender! Check this thing out: it’s a Blendtec, it’s got super-duper horsepower, and can blend anything in the world, and it has made my kale smoothie life so much easier.
Without further adieu, let’s get started!
First thing I’m gonna do, is I’m gonna throw in about a half a cup of these frozen cherries, about a half a cup of frozen strawberries, a half cup of apple juice, one TIIIIINY shake of cinnamon – like a HALF-shake; don’t put a lot in there, just a tiny bit for taste – and one fresh piece of kale.
Just for fun, I’m putting hemp oil and flax oil into my smoothies lately, because the Omega-3s are really great, and it helps your body metabolize fat.
So, just a squirt of each.
For the creamy part, we’re gonna put in a generous dollop of greek yogurt. It’s gonna make it taste super, duper good.
Alright, let’s blend that up.
Okay, let’s see what that tastes like. Mm, MM! Sorta like strawberries and cream.
Creamy, cherry, strawberry kale smoothie. Try it, I think you’ll like it.
PS: if you click the image below and end up buying a Blendtec, I will get a small commission. If not, then you just got to drool over some cool-ass blenders and no harm done!
