Pineapple Kale Smoothie

I planted a lot of leafy greens in my garden this year. Kale, arugula, chard and lettuce. It’s all growing. And quickly. So lately, when I go to make a fruit smoothie, I end up adding greens to it at the very end. And that’s exactly what happened with this pineapple kale smoothie.

I put all the fruit in the blender and pressed start. Right as I was about to pour, I thought “hmm… this would be good with kale.” So out to the garden I went. A handful of kale and another whirl around the blender and the smoothie was ready.

And it was good. And the kids agreed. In fact, I only had about three sips of the pineapple kale smoothie before my youngest stole it from me.

It has hempseeds in it, just like the berry pineapple smoothie. They provide protein for us vegetarians. I also added a spoonful of coconut shavings to the smoothie. They didn’t blend all the way so the smoothie was a little chunky but no one complained.
