These lovely Christmas Green Smoothies came to life when I needed to use up a few ingredients. I had 4 leftover fresh palm cabbage stalks that I wanted to add to this lovely cranberry based smoothy. So, I created these lovely smoothies!
Step 1: Gather Your Ingredients!
Recipe: For 2 smoothies
1/2 cup ( 62 gr) frozen cranberries
2 cm fresh peeled ginger
4 smaller stalks palm cabbage, hard core removed (home-grown) (also called cavolo nero or black kale) I
1 juicy orange, peeled & deseeded
500 ml water
1/2 peeled banana if you like it sweeter! I added this!
Step 2: Blend, Sip & Enjoy!
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 can taste the cabbage, a hint of cranberry & a small kick from the ginger! Pour into 2 lovely large smoothy glasses & enjoy with a thick colorful straw! Yum!
