This healthy, flavourful smoothie takes advantage of two wonderful seasonal ingredients in the Pacific Northwest- kale, and strawberries. This is truly the time of year to eat local strawberries. Buy them at your local farmer's market or pick them yourself at a U-Pick farm. You won't find juicier, sweeter berries than in the next few weeks! I've paired the strawberries in this smoothie with kale for a boost of nutrients, and a bit of earthy flavor. I used curly kale, but any kind will do. What a fantastic way to start the day!
