Green Christmas smoothy!

on 10/12/2015

This afternoon, I invented this lovely green Christmas Smoothy! I had leftover cranberries & fresh black kale leaves from our allotment so I needed something energizing to get me through the afternoon. Yum yum yum! ๐Ÿ™‚



Recipe: for 4 cups = 1 liter of smoothy


2 cups coconut water (500 ml)

1 cup fresh cranberries (120ย gr)

4 black kale leaves, cleaned, big stalks removed ( I used 3 large & 1 small leaf)

1 orange, peeled & deseeded

1 tablespoon broken flaxseed

2 pitted large dates


  1. Take your beloved Vitamix & place every ingredient in this order in it. Place tamper & fitted lid on & blend on high-speed for about 10-15 seconds, by using tamper to push ingredients into the running blades. Pour into lovely smoothy glasses & enjoy with a paper straw! ๐Ÿ™‚ Yum! You get a kick of the black kale, the sweetness of the orange & dates & specks of yummy fresh cranberries!

    It works! Delicious

    Christmas love
    spreads joyfully to
    friends, new and old, as
    natural as mountain streams
    flow under

    ice and snow
    still moving, to join.
    comes from sharing a
    round table. Buddha

    Jesus, Confucius,
    Abraham, Gandhi
    and Luther invite a pope
    to break bread

    under one God
    that all pray to here
    in Gwangju,
    there in Amsterdam,
    and Davao, where the

    hunt for food
    and water reverts to old
    ways, not the
    usual Christmas,
    but children scramble

    for goodies
    like coconuts, fruit, rare meat
    while we feast
    on turkey, baked so
    well, spring rolls folded

    and rolled by
    hands so delicate you canโ€™t
    what theyโ€™ve done. Merry
    Christmas everyone.
