Default Made my First Green Smoothie!

Made my first green smoothie this morning!!

But it has a taste that I'm going to have to acquire in time. Seems a bit too tangy!

I'll have to tweak it a little, as time goes on though, to get it to taste a little better.

Thanks QSis.

Water, kale, grapes, pineapple, a little honey and some ice.

I left the stems on the kale, but next time, I'm talking them off I think it'll be smoother if I do.

I may do it again for supper, but I won't make that much! I think that I put too much kale in it. Three big leaves of it!!!

Yeah, I just cooked up a bag of Tuscan kale and thought it was a tad on the bitter side. I added a sprinkle of sugar and some malt vinegar and liked it.

You'll get the right combo eventually, Shermie!

Here's a somewhat lighter looking smoother and creamy looking one!

I made it again, but this time, using the same ingredients, I cut back on the kale, used 1/2 of an avocado and gave it a creamier texture.

Looks almost like split pea soup, hey?!!

Thanks.

I also added more honey to it than I did with the one this morning, to cut more of the bitterness in the kale. You're right, it IS bitter! Got a big bunch of it. Be a while before it is all used up.

Tomorrow, I'll try my hand at making a frozen strawberry smoothie with lowfat yogurt, but I need some 1% milk first. The supermarket I went to is selling it too close to the expiration date!!

I got some spirolina but have not tried it yet.

I'm getting a little tired of kale.

Me, also!

I DO have some spinach, which I may try in the morning. I think that it has far less bitterness & bite than the kale.

I'll throw a carrot in it also.

I've since stopped using kale because of the extreme bitterness that it has. Spinach is much more milder and with far less acidity!

QSis;

Here's what I now think is an even lighter, creamier & smoother one, having left out the kale altogether!

I've replaced it, using spinach in place of the kale, mainly because it has way too much acidity and is just too unbearably bitter!

I'll stick with spinach from now on. Has a much smoother milder more friendly taste, unlike the extreme harshness of kale!! I think now, that I've perfected it to my taste and flavor!!
