Carambola/Kale/Banana Smoothie: my new Favorite

IMG_1299 (2)This is my new favorite smoothie–not kidding–it is sweet and delicious! If you’ve never had Carambola (Star Fruit), it tastes similar to grapes. I use the fruit fresh from my trees.

RECIPE: Fill the blender in these proportions:

  • 1/3 fresh or frozen Carambola
  • 1/3 Kale + 2 ripe Bananas
  • 1/3 Water and/or Ice
  • Blend until smooth

If you don’t have access to carambola, you could replace it with seedless grapes. I haven’t tried it with grapes, so if anyone does, please let me know what it tastes like… Other recipes: Carambola/Blueberry Smoothie/JuicePapaya/Carambola Smoothie.
