I loved the kale, blueberry, banana and orange juice smoothie I made so much that I decided to make another smoothie like it. The difference this time was to substitute strawberries for the blueberries. Personally, I like strawberries more than I like blueberries so I prefer this smoothie. Additionally, this smoothie is packed with vitamin A, B-6, and C, and also contains a wide variety of minerals.

Strawberry Banana Kale Smoothie
Here’s what you’ll need:
- A banana
- 1/2 cup of strawberries
- One large curly kale leaf
- One cup of fresh squeezed orange juice
Start by washing and drying your large curly kale leaf. Once washed, rip or cut the kale leaves from the stem and place in your vitamix or any other high powered blender. Discard the stem from the kale.
Next, add in the banana, strawberries and fresh squeezed orange juice. If you don’t have time to make fresh squeezed orange juice, then using store bought will work as well.
Blend this strawberry, banana, kale, and orange juice mixture in your vitamix or high powered blender until all the vegetables and fruits have broken down. What you should be left with is a vibrant green smoothie with a very smooth texture.
This will make two cups of this delicious strawberry banana kale smoothie which should be poured into glasses and enjoyed immediately for the freshest taste!
