Pairing kale with fruit works perfectly in smoothies. In this vividly green drink, the taste of earthy kale is balanced out with sweetness from apple cider, diced pear and frozen grapes. And unlike juices,... smoothies give you the whole food — juice, fiber, nutrients and all. It’s a delightfully delicious and refreshing way to get those cancer-fighting servings of fruits and veggies into your system.
Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend well. Taste and add more apple cider if desired. Drink immediately.
We recommend using ripe Bartlett, Anjou or Comice pears. They are the sweetest.
While you may not be able to find frozen grapes at the store, you can easily freeze grapes at home. Spread the grapes on a pan with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat, then put the pan in the freezer. (This helps the grapes to freeze separately, rather than in clumps.) Once the grapes are frozen, you can transfer them to a storage bag.
