Fennel Fig Kale Smoothie Recipe

Hey guys!

I’m excited to share this smoothie with you because it’s the most sophisticated recipe I’ve tried yet – and it contains flavors I had never tasted together before! Orange, fennel, fig, lemon and almond butter all combine to create a brand-new combination of flavors that is rich and zesty to the max! I modified this recipe from one I found called Mediterranean Dream, in my favorite green smoothie book.

I hope you like it as much as I do!

    Hey Paul,
    your kale recipes look awfully good. I can’t quite decide which one I’m going to make tonight 🙂 Just a quick note to let you know you forgot to add kale to the list of ingredients in the Fennel Fig Kale smoothie.

    • Hi Natalie,

      I usually put 1-2 cups of kale in each smoothie, and I always guestimate it. That’s what I recommend you do, too! Smoothie-makin’ is not an exact science. Thanks for writing!
