Kale Spinach Pear Smoothie

via Joy the Baker who is very inspiring and you should read her blog because she is an amazing baker. she normally talks about butter and sugar and of course I believe her when she says it is delicious. but a Kale Spinach Smoothie, are you sure Joy?

I love the idea of eating dark leafy green vegetables at breakfast time. I love the idea of eating them all the time really, but hiding them in a smoothie is genius. Cooking greens can reduce some of the nutritional content but I've never heard that pulverizing them does.

I used:
1 cup spinach
1 cup kale
1/2 pear
1 small to medium banana (joy uses frozen but I'm super impatient so mine was 'cold')
1 1/2 cups of organic skim milk (joy uses almond milk which I didn't have)
1 tbsp Agave Nectar (joy uses honey but I dislike honey)

Here is my link to approximate basic nutritional content. The smoothie was really good, thick and even Chris liked it!

Happy Eating!
