Rated 5 out of 5 by smiley_family from EXCELLENT WAY TO EAT RAW KALE I measured out all the ingredients as listed in the recipe. I added a few dashes of cinnamon to mask the slight raw greens taste, but other than that, this is a great way to sneak some greens into your diet.

My smoothie consists of 1 banana, 1/4 c pineapple, 1/4 c mango, a wad of spinach & a wad of kale, 1/2 c water & 4 ice cubes on top. It seems too thick & frothy. Any suggestions to fix that problem? Thank you
You can try adding a bit more liquid, or more pineapple since it has a lot of liquid to begin with. This will thin out your smoothie and also make it less frothy.

Do you keep the stems on the kale or chop them off?
Keeping the stems on the kale will make for a thicker smoothie so you may need to thin it out with more liquid.
