I'm a San Francisco city girl who loves to cook and enjoy the outdoors. My cooking style focuses on healthy recipes, but I have a huge sweet tooth that I am constantly fighting! When I'm not cooking/eating/photographing/writing about food, I'm at the hospital full-time or running. I'm addicted to blogging about food - www.mysanfranciscokitchen.com

If you’re looking for a great energy boost in the mornings or at lunchtime, this kale smoothie will surely do the trick! I have to admit, I completely despise eating kale. I’ve tried it in a few different recipes and did not like any of them. I know kale is incredibly healthy, but even when I buy it at the grocery store, I cringe at the thought of incorporating it into a meal each day it sits in my fridge. I know there are some people out there who love kale, even in the raw, but the only way I found I can incorporate it into my diet is smoothies. I created this delicious berry kale smoothie because it allows me to eat (drink?) kale raw, which preserves the nutrients as opposed to cooking it. I can barely tell I’m eating 1/2 cup raw kale in just one 8 oz smoothie. The yummy strawberries and raspberries hide the taste and with the Magic Bullet, you don’t notice a difference in texture.
