Peacock Kale Smoothie recipe by Barefeet In The Kitchen

I couldn’t resist making a smoothie with some of the fantastically purple peacock kale that came in our CSA Box this week. Who can resist a green smoothie that isn’t green at all?

Anytime you are making a smoothie with kale, it is important to blend it as smooth as possible. I also balance the kale greens with a good bit of orange juice. This still counts as a green, even if it’s bright purple. It is a no fail combination for deliciousness.

The three toddlers in the house drank every sip of this smoothie in about 5 minutes. It was good!

Peacock Kale Smoothie


  • 2 cups orange juice I used freshly squeezed, but store bought is fine as well
  • 1 large handful of peacock kale about 2-3 cups chopped
  • 1 large banana frozen is best
  • 1 cup frozen grapes
  • Optional: 1-2 tablespoons of chia seeds


  • Rinse the kale and shake off the excess water. Pull the leaves away from the core and then remove the longest tips of the stem. (If you have a very powerful blender, you can leave all the stems, but be careful to blend it long enough to become smooth. Tasting bits of kale in the smoothie is not a lot of fun.) Roughly chop the kale into 3-4" pieces.
  • Layer the orange juice, kale, banana and grapes into the blender and puree until smooth. Add chia seeds if desired and pulse to combine. Enjoy!

      Kale grows great here, Donna. We grew a lot of it last year. This peacock variety came in the local produce box this week. 😉
