Food for thought : Kale Smoothies

#babyphoenix napped just long enough to let me finally jump on the #kale #smoothie bandwagon.
I've always been a big fan of adding spinach to Indio's smoothies in order to get a little bit of green into his life, but I was slow to the whole kale smoothie phenomenon until recently.

Being home with a newborn leaves little time for preparing meals, but yesterday morning, during a brief 10-minute nap when Phoenix let me put him in his swing, I quickly threw some kale, peanut butter, milk, and a banana into the blender with some ice and made myself a delicious *green monster shake.*

I have to say, it was delicious and it staved off the hunger pains until dinner time. [Of course, Phoenix woke up the minute I sat down with my drink!]

Tomorrow, if I get the chance, I'm going to try it with avocado and honey instead of peanut butter.

Are you a fan of these nutritious green drinks? What's in your smoothie?
