Kale Smoothie

Cuisinart original

Green smoothies are all the rage for good reason – they are packed with nutrients and are a great way to start the day. This is what we like to call the beginner’s smoothie, for the mango and strawberries add just the right amount of sweetness to balance out the kale. 


Makes 2, 10-ounce servings


1          cup almond milk, or orange juice
