I just love Kale!  I love the way it looks, feels, tastes and what it offers as benefits.  You can have it fresh, dried, cooked and even frozen!  It is so versatile that you can add it to almost everything: soups, stir fries, omelets, salads, etc.  I get it in my summer veggie basket, grow it in the garden and freeze it for the rest of the year.  Yes, I freeze it!  Actually, I pretty much freeze everything so it will keep.  The best part is when you can add your garden & tree frozen fruits & vegetables into your smoothies.  It actually tastes great and gives it a nice texture.  It feeds you well during the winter months and is so refreshing during the summer.

So because of all it wonderful benefits, that you can find here

I love to have it, especially in my smoothies in the morning.  Here is a simple smoothie recipe I have been making all week.

Ingredients:

1 cup coconut water

1 cup water

1 table spoon (15 ml) groud flax seed

1/4 cup of frozen organic blueberries

1/4 cup of frozen organic strawberries

1/2 an organic banana (optional)

1/2 cup of frozen organic kale leaves

Blend all the ingredients together in a blender at high speed for at least 2 minutes and serve right away.  And there you have a green smoothie at it’s best!

You can vary the fruits as you wish and you can substitute coconut water for 1/4 coconut milk and 1 and 3/4  cups of water.  Either way, you will love this high vitamin and mineral, great tasking treat!
