Like Kale for Chocolate Smoothie Recipe

18 Jul

Velvety red kale makes amazing smoothies

Have been attempting a raw food diet for the last couple weeks. Day One went well:

Raw basil cucumber soup with garlic and almond milk
Green juice
Crappy tasting smoothie from packet
Chocolate cake
Kid’s leftover burger
Glass of saké

Day Two was a little better; found some beautiful red kale at the Hillsdale Farmers’ Market and made a batch of these. Delicious, nutritious, and kale is supposed to be the “KING” of antioxidants. AND the smoothie even tastes a little chocolate-ly. This ingredient combo is recommended by the “Clean” diet by Dr. Alejandro Junger and makes good biological sense.

Kale/Avocado/Mango Smoothie
5-6 large kale leaves (preferably red kale if you can find it)
1/2 medium avocado
1/2 mango
1 cup vanilla almond milk
1 cup coconut milk “beverage” from So Delicious® or coconut water
1/2 cup coconut water (slight preference for Taste Nirvana)
6-8 ice cubes

Blend and consume with self-righteousness. Thin with coconut water to your liking.
