Bumper crop

I just can't eat the kale fast enough. It's overflowing the little raised beds, so happy and hearty and green. I scoop it up in huge handfulls and use it for a daily lunch smoothie. If you put enough fruit in there, you never taste the kale. Which is basically the only way I eat it.

My typical smoothie will have a banana and kale, almond milk, maybe some nonfat greek yogurt or whey protein powder, some carrots, and some frozen fruit- blueberries, strawberries, maybe mango. Yummers. And for some reason, frozen berries taste better in a smoothie than fresh to me. Anyone else find that?
