Wow! I didn’t think when I started that I would keep this up. But we are now in week 5 or 6 on the kale train.
Now that I really like the taste and have fine-tuned some glitches (too little water, too much chia-seeds, too old kale, not blended long enough), I find it’s time to
take this smoothie-thing to the next level (eek – that sounds like work speak, let’s strike that) play around with smoothies that help me recover from my long runs and walks and re-hydrate me well.
- 1 cup kale
- protein powder of your choice (I use Garden of Life’s RAW protein, it’s certified organic and plant-based)
- 1 banana
- 8 oz filtered water
That’s it! Super simple. And so far my most favorite post-run drink! Even better than chocolate-milk which I thought was awesome already!
By the way – if you wondered how I blend my smoothies: I use a KitchenAid 5-speed blender and throw everything in at once. I first chop, then puree and then liquefy the food. That’s it. I find that the smoothies are really smooth (pun intended), no chunks and are fun to drink.
And one more note:
