Don't be afraid of kale! This tropical smoothie tastes more like pineapple and banana, it just happens to be bright green.

I was skeptical, but really didn't taste the kale. I used skim milk and almond extract instead of almond milk. I told my VERY picky 4 year old it was a pineapple milkshake and got him to drink some too. Read More

We used frozen fruit and yogurt instead of milk and it was DELICIOUS. My 11 year old daughter loved it too! Read More

We amended the recipe and still it was delicious! I was out of pineapple so used frozen mango chunks. Fearing it might be bitter added a tablespoon of maple syrup. It was delicious! Read More

First time using kale and loved it! Because I'm allergic to nuts I used soy milk vs. almond milk. Tastes great and I would recommend this if you haven't ever tried kale before you won't be disappointed! Read More

I used this recipe to make freezer packs. Worked like a charm. This makes 2 really big cups if you are wanting to make a single smoothie, you would need to cut it in half. I have used orange juice and coconut milk and both make delicious smoothies. Read More

I keep a stash of frozen bananas I use regularly with almond milk for a smoothie had just purchased fresh pineapple (to get my husband to eat SOMETHING healthy) and had purchased kale simply because of its low calorie high nutrition. So finding this recipe I added fresh ginger and of course STEVIA thank God stevia is so easy to access now in regular grocery stores. Thanks for posting this recipe! Read More

This was a very tasty smoothie. My husband even liked it and he is skeptical of these things. I substituted spinach for the kale because it is what I had and it was delicious. It does have a very strong banana flavor but I could still taste the pineapple. I think when I make it again I will use coconut milk. I definitely recommend it! Read More
