Kale is such a versatile green!  It can be used to make both sweet and savoury dishes and it can be eaten raw or cooked.  It is so delicious!  It is also so easy to grow!  I’m already harvesting what I have planted this spring, and it will keep growing all summer and fall.  Some years I’m still picking it into December!  One of our favourite ways to eat kale is in a morning breakfast smoothie!  Over the years, I have tried green smoothies so many ways, and this recipe is my go-to! You’ll notice this recipe doesn’t have exact measurements – feel free to adjust the amounts of each ingredient to suit your taste buds best!  Hope you like it!

Ingredients

1 large handful of freshly harvested kale
1 frozen banana
1 handful of frozen pineapple (or any other frozen yellow or light coloured fruit such as mango or peaches.  Berries will work too, but they will turn the smoothie brown!)
1 small handful of frozen avocado
1-2 dates
2 large spoonfuls of plain yogurt
2 Tbsp hemp seeds
2-3 cups of water

 

Directions

In your blender, add the frozen bananas, pineapple and avocado.  Next, add the yogurt, dates and hemp seeds.  Fill the rest of the blender up with kale.  Add 2 cups of water.  Blend on medium-high speed until smooth.  Add more water as needed to reach the consistency you like.  Enjoy!
