Strawberry Peanut Butter Kale Smoothie

While still waiting for most of my veggies to mature in the garden, I had an abundance of lettuce, green peas, kale, and strawberries. So I decided to throw them all in a smoothie! Just kidding. Only two out of four. This new recipe is similar to my Green Power Smoothie, but this flavor is not quite as sweet.

1) remove leaves from center stems of kale. discard the stems. use only the leaves, torn in smaller pieces.
