This dark green, luscious shake is my go to drink when I need a little protein pick me up.
To me, the flavor of the kale is not that pronounced, what comes through is the creamy richness of the protein powder with the tart sweetness of the orange, thereby forming a yummy gluten-free, dairy-free creamsicle experience in a glass. Enjoy!
- 1 cup kale, chopped
- 1 whole orange, peeled and chopped
- ¼ cup water
- 1 scoop egg white protein powder
- 1 cup ice cubes
- In a vitamix combine kale, orange, water and puree on high speed
- Blend in protein powder, then ice cubes
- Serve in a pretty glass
I will be speaking at (the sold out!) BlogHer Food ’10 this Saturday, October 9th discussing the ins and outs of recipe writing. You can find more information about my appearance on the BlogHer event website.
This is one of the first recipes that drew my attention to your site a little over a year ago now. Such an ingenious combination. I knew I had found a site that would actually bring new, exciting, healthy ideas into my life. I make it with 3 tablespoons of hemp seed and 2 teaspoons of vanilla instead of the egg white protein. Such a treat! Thank you.

This looks fantastic! I might have to whip up a batch of this for an evening snack. Amazingly, I have everything I need!
I’ve been looking for a protein powder to supplement my breakfast, and I have tried 2 today that were AWFUL..Is this Frank Zane one good with just water?
Or, if anyone else has tried this protein powder, would you recommend it?
