This is milder and sweeter than the green smoothies I’ve been making, and makes two tall glasses.

Ingredients:
1 fresh peach, skinned
Half an apple, cored and chopped
Two small handfuls chopped kale
Two cups ice cubes
1 cup yogurt milk*
Sugar to taste, 1-2 Tbsp.

Blend away!

*I make my yogurt in quart jars, and it’s difficult to get the last cup of yogurt out of the jar. I normally pour in some skim milk and shake and stir till the yogurt and milk are mixed. If I’m going to drink it, I might add a spoonful of jam as well. Today I used it to make my smoothie, with about half left over for a snack or another smoothie.

  1. I have never heard of anyone making their own yogurt. How do you do that? This recipe sounds good. I am intrigued as I have never had a smoothie with kale but I bet the kids would eat it if it were in a smoothie.
