Ellen DeGeneres famously has the best single-word chapter ever written, in her 2011 book, “Seriously…I’m Kidding.”

Ellen DeGeneres chapter in bookIt says “Kale.”

I’ll see you, Ellen, and raise you one: Kale Margaritas. Boldface, baby!

I tasted these earlier this month at Kale-a-palooza, the all-things-kale party thrown by Food Bloggers Los Angeles. You know food bloggers…they like nothing better than to celebrate the trendy, the healthy and the delicious.

Kale is all three.

Chef Garrett Nishimori of San Miguel Produce tasting a Kale MargaritaWhirled up in a blender by Chef Garrett Nishimori of Cut `n Clean Greens, these SuperKALE Margarita Smoothies are really green and really good! They would be perfect for watching a football game, serving at a brunch, during the cocktail hour, or pre- or post-workout (without the tequila).

He used the company’s SuperKALE Salad Slaw to make them. Triple washed and ready to use, this salad makes it easy to toss together a side dish, or in this case, a kale-tastic beverage.

SuperKALE for the Super Bowl.

I like the symmetry.

Once you get people to drink something green it will be the talk of the party.

Only because I LOVE your Basilrita so much, that I will try the SuperKALE Margarita Smoothies. I am still warming up to kale. 🙂

Your courage is showing! Well…I would say this is like a frozen margarita, a blended smoothie type thing. You will like it! The kale makes it green, the fruit is the predominant flavor.

OK – I’m sold! They’re officially on my Superbowl menu. Thinking about a non-alcoholic version for the kiddos too…

Use coconut water instead of tequila (he calls this out in the recipe).
