Pomegranate Cherry Kale Smoothie

I am a tad obsessed with green smoothies. If you haven’t tried one yet, this may be one you like! This one is about as decadent and dessert-like as greens can get.

Creamy, antioxidant-rich, sweet, and full of fresh kale…really, what more could you ask for? šŸ™‚

I used Trader Joe’s pomegranate kefir, but pretty much any brand that makes kefir seems to offer a pomegranate flavor. Pomegranate juice would work beautifully too!

Ingredients:

  • 3-4 cups fresh spinach, kale, or a mixture of both
  • 1 ripe banana
  • 3/4 cup your choice of milk (I used unsweetened vanilla almond milk)
  • 1/2 cup pomegranate kefir or juice
  • 3/4 cup frozen cherries or berries
  • Vanilla protein powder (optional)
  • 1 tbs chia seed (optional)
  • Ice

Directions

Just put everything into a blender, with the greens on the bottom and frozen fruit on top. Blend until it reaches your desired consistency.

Yum!

    • Ha, you’re right about it not breaking down! If you have a really nice blender it’ll be fine, but mine…well, let’s just say I end up chewing the smoothie…;) I do remove th stems, which helps a lot, and usually i use a mix of both kale and spinach to help with the texture. I really like the green smoothie recipes you have posted!
