The Perfect Kale Shake

Little Green Girl doesn't really like eating leafy green vegetables so I was pleasantly surprised to see that she liked our homegrown Kale in her shake. They say it takes 10-15 attempts to potentially get your kid to eat a vegetable so consuming it in a shake makes me just as happy!

If you are as crazy about Kale as I am, you might want to know about Diana Dyer. She's is a registered dietitian, multiple time cancer survivor, avid gardener, and blogger at
So hail to Kale any which way you eat or drink it!

Little Green Girl Kale Shake

4 Young Kale leaves (Lacinato type)
1 1/2 Cups of milk
1 Tablespoon of Ovaltine
1/2 Cup of frozen or fresh fruit

Blend together and enjoy!

This perfect Kale shake high in antioxidants, vitamin A, C and K.


Our salad table with more Kale seedlings and Amish Deer
Tongue lettuce in the last bed.

Can't wait to make Kale chips. A little olive oil, salt and pepper
and roasted in the oven till crisp.

Hey, Little Green Girl: that is one fine-looking kale shake! Blend me up one, please?

This looks like a delicious recipe, I will definately try it. :-)

Great post. We just made kale chips last night, and are daily smoothie makers. We keep our smoothie greens in the freezer (we use all kinds) until use - they blend much easier and finer that way.

Thanks for the kind words.

I love that Kale is so versatile, we were able to grow it until late November under a low tunnel.

Can't say as I would drink something with Kale, but I certainly wouldn't rule it out- especially if LGG likes it= must be good
