Tastes-Like-Ice-Cream Kale Smoothie

This tastes-like-ice-cream kale smoothie is the most popular recipe on the site.

I get over 500 emails a week about this kale smoothie from delighted smoothie drinkers who are obsessed with this smoothie since I featured it in The Blender Girl cookbook.

Sun Cafe, my favorite local raw restaurant, won SeriousEats.com’s Best Smoothie in L.A. award for a blend that’s similar to this one. I’m not sure exactly what they put in their award-winner, but this is pretty close. One taste and you’ll understand why kale- phobic omnivores line up and even double- park in front of SunCafe to run in and get their fill.

Just read the comments. This is the best kale smoothie you will ever taste.
