Last week we gave you a list of ways to add kale to your life, getting it into lots of meals here and there. A smoothie was on that list and so we just had to share one with you.

This one has the kale in it, of course. And lots of frozen berries. The cool thing about it is that it’s sweetened with Balsamic vinegar, which has fewer calories than honey and adds a really cool flavor. Enjoy!
