Green Energy Smoothie

**found in January 2011 issue of Bon Appetit

You do not need a juicer for this drink.  A simple blender will do.

1 1/2 cups fresh orange juice
1 banana, peeled, cut into 2-inch pieces
1/2 cup (packed) coarsely chopped kale leaves, center salt and stem removed
1/2 kiwi, peeled
2 pitted medjool dates, coarsely chopped

Test kitchen tip: Freeze the banana for a colder, thicker beverage

Combine orange juice, banana, chopped kale, kiwi, and chopped dates in blender.  Puree until smooth, stopping and scraping down sides of blender as needed.  Divide between two 12-ounce glasses and serve.

Enjoy! xoxo Julie
