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!
