This afternoon, I invented this lovely Christmas Green Smoothy! I had leftover cranberries & fresh black kale leaves from our allotment so I needed something energizing to get me through the afternoon. Yum yum yum!
Step 1: Gather Your Ingredients!
Recipe: for 4 cups = 1 liter of smoothy
2 cups coconut water (500 ml)
1 cup fresh cranberries (120 gr)
4 black kale leaves, cleaned, big stalks removed ( I used 3 large & 1 small leaf)
1 orange, peeled & deseeded
1 tablespoon broken flaxseed
2 pitted large dates
Step 2: Blend & Enjoy!
Take your beloved Vitamix & place every ingredient in this order in it. Place tamper & fitted lid on & blend on high-speed for about 10-15 seconds, by using tamper to push ingredients into the running blades. Pour into lovely smoothy glasses & enjoy with a paper straw! :) Yum! You get a kick of the black kale, the sweetness of the orange & dates & specks of yummy fresh cranberries! Yes!
