10 Ways to Cook Kale

Kale Smoothies

We understand your hesitation to drink a glass of greens. But having a kale smoothie doesn't mean choking down a bunch of soggy, tough leaves. A good-quality blender will pulverize the kale, making it virtually undetectable and even more nutritious than if you chewed it yourself. You can easily mask any bitterness with fruit -- try this recipe first and then feel free to experiment!
