Greenslove bloghop: Purple Kale Smoothie

March is #greenslove month!

Please join in on the #greenslove fun by linking up any leafy green recipe from the month of March 2012. Don't forget to link back to this post, so that your readers know to come stop by the #greenslove event! The twitter hashtag is #greenslove :). 

I was really excited for the #greenslove bloghop! YUMMO!  Especially this time of Ohio...I just start yearning for spring and for fresh veggies out of the garden.  I have been creating and making a lot of smoothies lately to help incorporate more greens into our diets!  My little Toddler Veg, who has the endless list of food allergies has been enjoying his "shakes" as well!  Smoothies, with greens as the predominant ingredient have become a household treat around here!  So raise your class and CHEERS to adding some more greens into your diet

This was a yummy smoothie I created the other day using my food processor!

2 cups Kale
1 cup soy milk (or your favorite milk....dairy, oat, hemp, almond)
1 scoop veg protein powder (can use soy, whey, egg protein, etc)
1 squirt of allergen free choc syrup
1/2 cup of frozen mixed berries or 1/2 cup of FRESH if you are lucky enough to have good berries this time of year

**Of course for Toddler Veg we used Hemp Milk and it gave it some great "nutty" flavor, but without any tree nut allergy issues!  I love it when I can adapt recipes to meet the allergy needs of my family!  Sometimes it gets hard, though!

Here are a few of my past recipes that I have made that involve some greens!
Black Bean, Sweet Po and Kale Enchiladas
Spinach, Mushrooms and Pine Nuts
Spinach and Red Pepper Calzones
Green Goddess Smoothie
