How much kale should I put in my smoothie?

The general rule of thumb is one handful of kale per serving which helps balance out the flavors. However, you can add more kale if you have a larger high-speed blender.

How to make kale smoothie taste good?

Lemon or lime will vastly improve the flavor and help make any green smoothie taste good. You can use lemon or lime juice and zest, or use all of it.

We also recommend combining lemon or lime with a fruit such as pineapple, banana, or apple which also improves the flavor.
