I've been on a green smoothie kick.  Green protein shakes for breakfast.... green 'shakes' for snacks..... My fiance is disgusted by my constant use of kale! ;) 
This morning's shake is my best yet, so I had to share.  The others are good, but they are green, in color, and that grosses some people out.  But this one isn't (berries make it become more purplish). So you could give this to your hubby or kids and they'd never know there's green in there!!
You'll need:
1 scoop vanilla protein powder (I use Body Fortress)
1/2 cup frozen berry medley (blackberries, raspberries, strawberries, blueberries)
1/2 extra small banana
dash truvia
1/4 cup unsweetened coconut milk
1/2 cup water
ice (I used 6 ice cubes)
1 cup raw kale
Blend a some of the water and the kale in the blender first.  This will make a green 'juice'.  Then add in remaining ingredients and blend until smooth.
Makes one serving.
