Savory and spicy may not be the first characteristics you'd expect in a juice, but once you try this flavor combination, you may find you can't kick the habit.
'kale' on Serious Eats
Let's get this out of the way: these aren't healthy, they're cocktails. They are, however, a great way to showcase the sweet, earthy taste of kale that has helped skyrocket it into vegetable stardom lately.
People tend to drink green juice to feel they're doing something good for themselves—and unfortunately, some of the green juices out there taste like you'd darn well better be doing something good for yourself. But it doesn't have to be that way. Green juice can be really delicious.
On an average day, the kitchen table at Serious Eats headquarters is usually covered with a box of leftover pizza from a photoshoot, an assortment of seasonal candy, a milky ball of Di Palo's mozzarella, a few pork products, a cutting board covered with 4 different meat-stuffed sandwiches. And that's before you even open the fridge. Suffice it to say, sometimes we gobble it all up, and sometimes our bodies scream, Stop! Eat something green, for once! So we turn to kale. We crave it—in salads, in soup, in stir fries, and even in drinks. Here are a few of our favorite kale juice combinations.
