I find that the vibrant colors of the raspberries and the mild flavor of dinosaur kale make a powerful raw food green smoothie combination. The bright raspberry color masks the greenness, and even though I put nearly an entire bunch of kale in this smoothie, my friend's kids didn't even notice. Isn't this one of the most beautiful raw food green smoothies you've ever seen?


  • 6 to 8 leaves lacinato kale (stems removed)
  • 3/4 cup raspberries (frozen)
  • 1 banana
  • 2 to 3 ice cubes
  • 1/2 cup orange juice (about)
  • Optional: 1/2 apple (chopped)
  • Optional: ground flaxseeds

Steps to Make It

  1. Blend everything together adding more or less ice and liquid, depending on your preference. Enjoy!
