Introduction: Black Kale Smoothy

This morning, I invented this dark green healthy smoothy! You know that I have 3 black kale aka Tuscany Cabbage plants. One got ripped out of the soil, I think because of rats underground, so I had to pull it out! You must check your black kale often, on caterpillars. Wash well, spin dry use. I like to use fresh black kale in a breakfast smoothy. I also freeze a lot of the torn cleaned leaves, for later use in fall or in Wintertime for in soups, stews, etc.

Step 1: Gather Your Ingredients!

2 cups (56 gr) cleaned, chopped fresh black kale

1 cup pitted halved frozen cherries

400 ml water

3 tablespoons chia seeds

2 pitted soft dates

2 tablespoons raw cacao nibs

Step 2: Vitamix It!

Place all ingredients in this order into your Vitamix & place fitted tamper & lid on. Blend on high-speed until it is fully mixed, using the tamper to push ingredients into the running blades. Taste. You must taste the chocolate & the kale! Pour into a lovely large smoothy glass & enjoy with a thick colorful straw! ;) Yum! ;)
