Disguise the Green

Would you like the benefits of a green smoothie without it being green?

The deep color of blackberries rules in this smoothie.

This morning, quite by chance, I blended up a neat combination that included a couple of bright green stalks of kale, apple juice, banana and blackberries. The resulting smoothie is royal purple in color without a trace of bitter kale flavor.

1 cup apple juice

1 frozen banana

1 cup blackberries

2 stalks of kale, curly leaves only - no stems

1/2 cup of water (if needed to thin it out)

I suspect the sweetness of the apple juice contributes a good deal to the smooth, sweet flavor.
