I know kale is one of the latest ‘trend’ foods around at the moment but to be honest I had only tried it once and decided to grab a bunch of it at the fruit and veg shop recently.
Kale has a bitter taste similar to rocket but is actually quite delicious. It is also seriously good for you. In fact, it is one of the healthiest vegetables around at the moment.
Kale is high in beta carotene, vitamin K, vitamin C, and rich in calcium. So with all of that aside, I decided to whip together a few kale-inspired recipes. One I recently came up with is what I like to call the berry good kale smoothie.
This recipe will serve two people.
You will need:
1/2 cup of kale leaves (stems removed) wash the kale and pat dry
1/2 cup of fresh or frozen blueberries
1 frozen banana
2 heaped teaspoons of natural yogurt
1 cup of milk of your choice
1 teaspoon of honey
A dash of cinnamon
Note – you could also add a teaspoon of chia seeds or two tablespoons of LSA
Add all of the ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth. Make sure that the smoothie isn’t too chunky and the kale is pureed well.
YUM YUM enjoy!
