A Green (or Rather Purple) Smoothie

Since it's all the rage these days, I decided to try a "green" smoothie. My blog friend Jessica is really into them and has been blogging about them as of late. I tried making one last year when she had been blogging about them, but it was gross. I had used some kind of chard and it tasted like dirt. I am all about making smoothies, but I don't usually go for putting greens in my smoothies. I'll put frozen fruit, yogurt, milk and maybe a banana, but as far as something green? Well, that is a little far fetched for me. I like greens, don't get me wrong, but I was hesitant to try another "green" smoothie after the last one went so wrong. But I had a can of coconut milk sitting in my cupboard and it was begging to be used... So it, along with a few leaves of Kale (stems removed) went into my smoothie maker with some left over avocado slices, a banana, and some frozen fruit. It was a marked improvement over the last one I had made. Still not delicious, but much better. Maybe it's a taste that grows on you? Anyway, I have a whole bunch of Kale that need to be used, so I guess I'll have to try making some more. Any suggestions?

Add a little sugar or honey.

As they say, "A spoon full of sugar makes the medicine go down..."

Uncle Dave puts spinach in his protein drinks (which look like smoothies). He also adds frozen blueberries and mixed berries, and some orange juice...along with some protein powder of coarse. They are purple though, not green.
