Strawberry Pineapple Kale Smoothie

An easy smoothie recipe with a green layer that doesn't taste "green".

Recipe slightly adapted from Damn Delicious

-1 1/2 cups strawberries
-1/2 cup milk (use plain or vanilla almond milk for a vegan smoothie)
-1 tablespoon honey, optional
-1 cup chopped kale, ribs and thick stems removed
-1/2 cup chopped pineapple
-1 banana
-1/2 cup pineapple juice

Combine strawberries, milk, honey and 1/2 cup ice in blender until smooth; set aside. We poured the strawberry smoothie into glasses and placed them in the freezer while we prepared the next layer.
Combine kale, pineapple, banana, apple juice and 1/2 cup ice in blender until smooth; set aside.
Serve strawberry mixture immediately, topped with kale mixture.


This is the first time I've ever purchased bananas...I just don't like them. I didn't want to remove them from the smoothie, because I know that bananas are good in smoothies as a thickening agent. Dave and I both enjoyed a smoothie for breakfast, it's definitely a healthy smoothie, Dave wanted to add a little ice cream to this, which probably isn't advisable for breakfast.
