  1. The first time I made this, I followed the recipe as written, except that I used cow's milk. It was just okay (three stars). Today I tried it again with a few more changes. In addition to using cow's milk (because that's what I like and what I have on hand), I added a big - Read more ...
  2. We get a ton of kale with our farmshare and this is a quick way to use it -- I doubt I'd be buying kale to make smoothies with but it's a good solution for the end of the week when I've still got kale in the fridge. I've been making it half-and-half skim milk - Read more ...

  7. I needed to double the amount of milk because my smoothie was so thick! Also if you are using a flavored rice/soy milk you don't need the maple syrup to sweeten it. Blend this for MUCH longer than you would a regular parsley or spinach green smoothie as kale is very fibrous and you want - Read more ...
  8. this was so good the only thing i changed was the soy milk i used vanilla rice milk because thats what i had. this is very similar to the green smoothies my mom makes. she uses 1/4 soaked date per serving as a sweetener i think i might try that next time to eliminate some - Read more ...
  9. This sounded so awful I had to try it! I was very pleased to find it absolutely delicious. I will probably cut the amount in half next time (and just eat the remaining banana) as it was very rich. I also used nonfat dairy milk as I had no soy.
