Kale/Spinach in smoothies

I have tried this twice. The first time I added the kale and blended. While the flavor was not affected, i had to brush and floss after drinking a smoothie because I looked like I just ate a handful of grass. Any secret to getting the greens to break down? (I use a magic bullet)

Also...what is the best way to measure greens? The chocolate cherry bomb smoothie calls for 1/2 - 3/4 cup spinach. Is this loose pack in the measuring cup?

Green Smoothie

Hi, I have tried the magic bullet - the only greens that it seems to efficiently blend - is spinach. Kale really doesn't liquify. You need a really good blender to completely pulverize the greens like the Vitamix. I had a lower priced blender for a long time though that worked relatively well (consumer reports recommend) it was a Braun. I absolutely believe that greens are so good for you that it is really worth it to incorporate more by way of a daily or 2x's a day green smoothie!

You need a vitamix

Try looking for one used on Craigslist... Yeah they are pricey but they blend everything to soup if you keep going... no chopped bits.

I have a target blender I got for $20-30 and it liquifies kale no problem! And I fill the whole thing up with kale.

Kitchenaid immersion blender works great!

I just had a protein smoothie with kale this morning, and my Kitchenaid immersion blender does the job. I throw in ice cubes too and even though a bit loud when griding ice, it handles that as well... and the cleanup is SUCH a breeze!! I couldn't live without it. It's allso great for soups and tomato sauce (which my kids won't eat if it has lumps in it). I think this is the one kitchen tool I couldn't live without.

A VITAMIX is the answer to all your mixing problems :D

And I have no Vitamix stocks. Once you're tried it, you won't be able to live without one.

The Vitamix was the ONLY reason I have been able to do and keep doing the JJ Virgin diet since april until today, and lost 17 lbs sofar, and counting,

It’s the first time I am hearing about a Spinach smoothie. I think it will be a healthy drink as spinach is good for health. It will be good if some chocolate syrup is also added to this smoothie so that there is some flavor in it. fernet
