Treats like this peanut butter kale smoothie helped me kick my ice cream habit. It’s a wonderful snack and a great way to sneak some dark leafy greens into your diet.
Not long ago I convinced my skeptical teenage son to give it a try – this is the same boy who once referred to my plant-based diet as “witchcraft.” I had the satisfaction of hearing him admit to his girlfriend the smoothie “actually tasted really good.”
Furthermore, a recent study found that folks who regularly eat peanuts are less likely to die of heart disease and other conditions. This creates a win-win situation in my book. The lovely combination of banana and peanut butter in this peanut butter kale smoothie offers all the sweet creamy deliciousness an ice cream lover may crave. But it’s made with healthy ingredients and you don’t even taste the kale!
