Cashew Kale Smoothie

This smoothie is delicious. It tastes like it could be kale ice cream!  I prefer to use green kale because the flavor is lighter than the other varieties. You can also use spinach which compliments the smoothie just as well and makes it a bit milder in flavor. I sometimes add apples and raw shredded coconut for a fruity twist!
