kale & peach matcha smoothie

another green smoothie, just in time for st. patty’s day!

and just as a warning, if you are not used to green smoothies, i would try this recipe with spinach instead of kale. it has a milder taste and blends down to a less-noticeable consistency. i happen to really like this recipe and the kale in it as i am reminded that i am getting in some of that sweet, sweetย superfood and a boost of energy i need.

regardless of whether you want to enjoy this as a pre-party snack, a morning-after miracle or just as a fresh spring smoothie, this beverage is sure to satisfy.
