Rated 5 out of 5 by Bruins4Eva from I was pleasantly surprised by the taste! In all fairness I had very low expectations about this green smoothie. I didn't think it was going to be sweet at all and I was also a bit worried about the kale flavor. To my surprise, it had very nice taste and it was moderately sweet. I couldn't taste the kale at all, mostly the grapes. I will definitely be making this again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Storm from Have never purchased kale from the grocery This is a good intro to eating kale for me. The smoothie has a very good taste - you can taste the citrus and the pear. Good consistency. Next time, I will cut the recipe in half to make just one serving.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LindaUK from WOW - amazing taste - very surprising! I was a little reluctant with this recipe as although i love spinach in my smoothies I am not a fan of kale in smoothies. Very surprised with this as very delicious - sweet (not overly) and very easy to drink! will be making again when I have kale and pears to use up!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Stormnolan from First time I've purchased kale at the grocery I put this on my list of recipes to try out. Glad that I did - good flavor, you can taste the citrus and the pear, but I didn't catch any off putting flavors like I expected from the kale. Will definitely make again.

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.
