The Perfect Kale Shake

 Come visit our blog about growing food and raising chickens in Chicago at Green Roof Growers.

 Kale shake ingredients  

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 new vegetable so having her consume it in a shake made me very happy!

If you're as crazy about Kale as I am, you might want to know Diana Dyer, she loves Kale too! 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!
