Kale Banana Smoothie

Many have asked how to make this smoothie, and I've tried lots of variations, and so far this is the easiest and best. For moms, you should know, when you juice kale, it has a bit of a chocolately taste, in my opinion. So you can splash a little chocolate protein powder in it if you'd like. My kids LOVE it, it tastes like Chocolate Banana to them :) enjoy!

(I recently discovered Plant Fusion, my new favorite protein powder - organic, vegan, soy-free- buy it here  for 15$ per lb. or at Sprouts for $20 per lb.)

1 Cup Ice

1 Cup Water

1 Cup Kale Juice (I juice the kale curly leaves in my Omega Juicer- about 6 large leaves or 1/4 bag cut kale)

1 Whole (peeled) Banana

Put all ingredients in the blender and mix! 
Makes 24-28 oz (or 2 tall glasses)
