A great semi-savory way to kick start your morning. More of a smoothie than a shake I suppose. I have seen a few different variations on the recipe, this is mine. Doesn't taste as odd as it sounds.

Half a bunch of kale, washed and stems removed.
1 cup frozen berries
1 banana
1 cup plain yogurt
roughly a cup or so of juice (apple, orange, grapefruit, whatever works for you)
1 clove raw garlic
about 25 grams fresh ginger, peeled and chunked.

Put it in the blender and blend at high speed until smooth.
You can store the remainder for 24-48 hours in the fridge.

Supercharged, high fiber, healthy breakfast to go. Works for me.

Good Lord! If that's what it takes to be healthy, I'd rather eat doughnuts and die happy.

The latest tweak/variation is with pineapple juice, no yogurt and a handful of fresh strawberries along with the frozen blueberry/blackberry/raspberry mix along with a little cinnamon and chili pepper. It's pretty damn good. 5 dollar shake good.

I like the sound of it I think I'll give it a try

somehow I don't think fish and cottage cheese would do much to improve this smoothie :rolleyes:


We tried Kale a few times but got turned off after finding it full of worms once... Now we stick to Arugula... Nowhere to hide ;)

Thanks for the mental picture, Julian...


:r

Pass the mental floss and double rinses coming up.



I was going to list the entire ingredient list of several cookbooks, but it seemed silly as fnck. ;)

Come on Pete, doesn't everyone want to juice a bagel? Maybe even a scone...

It would be a nice accompaniment to the dirty hot dog water martini.

Kale? Isn't that the green stuff near lettuce at the grocery store?

I squinted and re-read the recipe with 'cake' instead of 'kale'...now it's got my attention.

Rep, despite my aversion to kale, I do appreciate the Pulp Fiction reference. Thanks.

It is Dave. By the time you add all the other ingredients, it pretty much overpowers the mild flavor of the kale, but what you are left with is a pretty intense green color, a boat load of vitamins/minerals/fiber. As far as kale as a vegetable goes? Hell no, I wouldn't eat it.

Mmmmm...... DHDWM's.......


You do remind me of the old family recipe for scones and my mothers insanity, however.

That's cool.

Only old family recipes I was ever given was pop tarts with extra gravy.

Kale by itself is good when done right.
The smoothie would make me shat like a shark :su

That's pretty funny, because my whack-job mother insists she made scones for us "all the time" when we were kids.



She never did.

My wife enjoys the joke when I say it, though.

What a coincidence, I never actually tried a pop tart until I was like 24 or 25. And I hate gravy.

I juiced a clove of garlic once and it was potent, could not get the zing out of my mouth for hours! And I love garlic, but would be hesitant to try juicing it again.

Other than that, this recipe sounds awesome!
