 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!   



 Little Green Girl Kale Shake

4 Young Kale leaves (Lacinato type)
1 1/2 Cups of milk
1 Tablespoon of Ovaltine
1/2 Cup of frozen or fresh fruit

Blend together and enjoy!
