Kale Banana Smoothie

I love LYFE Kitchen in Palo Alto and the gluten-free menu--what I absolutely love is the Kale-Banana smoothie. I probably frequent LYFE about 2-3 times per week, specifically for this after a spin session or aerial yoga class. I had been trying to recreate this smoothie at home and after many attempts, I have finally found the recipe. gluten-free, gluten-free palo alto, palo alto gluten-free, gluten-free fare, gluten-free smooties, kale, banana, banana smoothies, kale-banana smoothies, lyfe kitchen, lyfe kitchen palo alto, lyfe kitchen kale-banana smoothies

I like that this recipe does not have milk (dairy, almond, coconut...). Sometimes, somethings are best kept simple. This smoothies proves just that. Plus, the bananas add the creaminess and smooth texture that milk would.

Northern California, Gluten-Free Travel, Gluten Free travel, Gluten-Free Traveling, Gluten Free Traveling, Gluten-Free Northern California, Mendocino, Northern California Coast Last year, on a recent stay in Mendocino's Stanford Inn by the Sea, I feel head over heals over the Chocolate Ganache Tart--decadently chocolatey with a delicious berry sauce. Not too sweet or heavy. Just wonderful! The best part? Both vegan and gluten-free! Now being back home, I have searched high and low for Chef Barry Horton Ravens Vegan Chocolate Ganache Tart recipe. Voilà! I have found it. The luxurious chocolate filling of this tart is amazingly easy to make.

Enjoy!
