There are seemingly countless kale smoothie recipes on the Internet,
and I've decided to add one more to the collection. I get one of these at just
about every raw restaurant and smoothie bar that I visit because I'm pretty
much addicted. As for my own recipe, I think there are three ingredients that
set it apart from the others: (1) almond butter, (2) silken tofu (for extra
creaminess), and (3) red kale, which is slightly sweeter than green kale. (FYI:
Red kale has green leaves but a reddish-purple stem, so it's easy to identify.)
I have a couple of these smoothies every week, post-workout, and it's always
just the refresher I need. Hope you like the recipe too!

If I have it on hand, sometimes I'll add a nickel-size piece of fresh
ginger, minced. If you like the taste of ginger, give it a try.
