Apple Banana Grape Chia Kale Smoothie recipe by Barefeet In The Kitchen

With a refreshingly light flavor, not overly sweet or heavy at all, this smoothie was given two thumbs up from all three of my boys. I had a bit of kale left in the refrigerator after making the Chipotle Cream Pasta a few days ago.

So, I decided to toss it in the blender and make a smoothie to serve with our lunch. If you are new to green smoothies or still inclined to think you can taste the “green” in them, I recommend using orange juice for all or a portion of the water.

I’ve made this smoothie both ways and prefer the lighter version with water for myself.

Side note: If you are brand new to the idea of a green smoothie, spinach blends up a bit smoother than kale and my taste buds preferred it for many years.

This smoothie was the original spinach smoothie that won me over to the green smoothie side (I swear that it only tastes like fruit and orange juice!) and I have never served it to anyone who has not enjoyed it.

    I still haven't ventured down the green smoothie path. Not that I wouldn't, I just tend to want to go with more of the fruit and berry type smoothies when I make them. Maybe it's time break out of the comfort zone 🙂

    The apples sound great and I love pears in a smoothie too. I do like Kale but love spinach smoothies so much more. Frozen grapes – another terrific idea 🙂

    This is honestly the first green smoothie I have enjoyed! I juiced the apples and green grapes with fresh bananas and kale. Forgot the chia seeds but will add next time. I made enough for four mason jars to freeze so I can thaw out one overnight for a fresh and healthy breakfast!5 stars
