Black Kale smoothy! Healthy, Vegan & Gluten-free!

on 02/09/2015


This morning, I invented this dark green healthy smoothy! You know that I have 3 black kale aka Tuscany Cabbage plants. One got ripped out of the soil, I think because of rats underground, so I had to pull it out! You must check your black kale often, on caterpillars. Wash well, spin dry use. I like to sue fresh black kale in a breakfast smoothy. I also freeze a lot of the torn cleaned leaves, for later use in fall or in Wintertime for in soups, stews, etc.Β Look at my beautiful black kale leaves! These are not all the black kale leaves!


Recipe: For 1 big smoothy


2 cups (56 gr) cleaned, chopped fresh black kale

1 cup pitted halved frozen cherries

400 ml water

3 tablespoons chia seeds

2 pitted soft dates

2 tablespoons raw cacao nibs


  1. Place all ingredients in this order into your Vitamix & place fitted tamper & lid on. Blend on high-speed until it is fully mixed, using the tamper to push ingredients into the running blades. Taste. You must taste the chocolate & the kale! Pour into a lovely large smoothy glass & enjoy with a thick colorful straw! πŸ˜‰ Yum!Β β™₯Β Stay Tuned & subscribe by email!
