the pure core organic life mirror

green drink / kale smoothie

  • one large organic kale leaf, or more if smaller (fresh picked if possible! if growing, pentland brig or lacinato / blue dino kale are excellent varieties)
  • 1/2 cup pure water
  • 3 ice cubes
  • 1 organic apple (any variety - granny smiths are great)
  • 3 - 4 frozen organic bananas
  • 2 cups Edensoy Original or Edensoy Extra
  • 3 Tbsp. ground organic golden flax seeds
  • 1 - 2 Tbsp. Dr. Bronner's Organic Virgin Coconut Oil
  • stevia to taste
this has pretty much become our favorite way to start the day - especially in warmer weather... wash the kale leaf and apple well... tear kale from the stalk and into smaller pieces, add to blender with 1/2 cup water - blend on high to liquify the kale... with a spatula, clean off the sides after blending as necessary... core apple, cut into smaller pieces and add to blender with the ice cubes - blend on high... add bananas, soymilk, flax seeds, coconut oil and stevia (depending on how sweet your fruit is, and how sweet you may like it, between 5 and 10 drops of liquid stevia, 1/16th tsp. of powder, or if you grow your own stevia use 2 - 4 large fresh picked stevia leaves blended with the kale or 1/8 tsp. crushed dried whole stevia leaf)... blend on high or on your blender's frozen drinks setting until thoroughly mixed... it should be a bright beautiful green, with lots of frothy bubbles... pour into glasses and enjoy immediately - serves 3 to 4 people
