In March of 2014, I read a book and began having a kale smoothie every day.
Now don’t squish your face in disgust and hit the delete button…this is good food folks…and by popular request, I am posting a wee recipe for you to try.
No, I am not ill, just became inspired by a book, then cherry picked through it to fit my needs.
Although a foodie with a food business, I admit not eating according to my standards. I get busy, and often the raw veggies go off the plate. This smoothie idea appealed to me because it is fast, loaded with nutrition, mostly raw, vegan, organic, and did I mention FAST??
Now for my recipe for Diane’s Kale Smoothie:
- gather, rinse and de-stem the kale
- gather, rinse a handful of parsley
- in the blender cup add 3/4 c. organic, unsweetened coconut milk
- a hefty T. of full fat (yes full fat!)coconut milk solid (once the can is opened, it turns to a solid in the fridge. Cover can with clean pet food lid)
- add heaping T of ground flaxseed
- add heaping T nutritional yeast (found in bulk department of health stores)
- add heaping 1/4 t. Spirulina (a very healthy green algae)
- stuff the kale and parsley into the cup and add frozen organic fruits of choice. I always include blueberries, and also like pineapple and mango
- Whirl all this goodness and enjoy
- if too thick just add more coconut milk or RO water to suit
I do not receive compensation for mentioning this publication nor ingredients in this post. I tried many ingredients before deciding on the ones featured. Dr. Wahl’s book is a very educational read, as she teaches the importance of greens, and, yes, organ meats. OMG! ORGAN meats!! I will admit, I cannot get past liver of any kind, yet discovered that beef heart is a most delectable and affordable edible. Sourced locally from grass-fed beef, and found at my farmer’s market, I always thank the beast and feel it’s strength in my body. Local bison and free-range local farm eggs are other favorite proteins that provide affordable, sustainable food.
Followers, I do hope you will make this book a summer read, and apply the information however it speaks to you. Details and specifics of nutrition are fully discussed in this publication, far better than I could mention here. I look forward to hearing your feedback. And remember, the smoothie recipe here is my personal creation, and can be changed to your liking. Just don’t omit the kale…
