Kale and Banana Smoothie Bowl

Kale and Banana Smoothie Bowl

With a name like Keogh, you can bet we’ll be having some good, clean St. Patrick’s Day fun. Scarlett and I will be dressing up in our cutest green blouses and maybe even adding a few buttons for “flair.” (Did you get the Office Space reference? Tell me you did.) My Irish husband always rolls his eyes at our overblown spirit for the holiday, but we can’t resist a reason to dress up, throw a party and eat things that are green. This green smoothie bowl, sweetened by 2 bananas, makes chowing down on this shade of the rainbow a little sweeter, especially for little eaters (they don’t always have to be little…I’m looking at you Mrs. Gibson!) who find green not so appealing. It makes a great breakfast or snack, whizzes up easy in your blender and is mighty filling. I’m guessing this little gem will wind-up being one of your recipe staples. If I’m wrong, I’ll eat my flair.
