I made this kiwi kale green smoothie on St. Patrick’s Day, but we will be making it many times in the future. I love the sweetness of this one – it satisfies my sweet tooth.
Since I added kale to this smoothie, I also added a tablespoon of agave syrup/nectar, in case the kale flavor was too strong. But, the kale hardly changed the flavor and the agave may not be necessary. You may want to make it first without the agave, adding it at the end if you need it.
The kiwi adds a little green to this one, but the kale is the real green. If you want a darker green color, add more kale!
I made it first with unfrozen bananas and ice, which was just liquid and hardly icy at all. The second time around I used frozen bananas and the ice to make a thicker, more frozen smoothie.
For two people, you might want to double the recipe. The recipe as is gives each person about a one cup serving.
If you have too much smoothie, you can pop the rest into the freezer. In fact, this recipe is perfect for pouring into your popsicle molds or frozen pops sleeves.
