Juicing With KALE!!! - Day 3

Yum? YUM! Yumish.

Mode: Blender

Added greens to our inventory. ScoobyDoo went to Sprouts and got kale, cucumber, zucchini, cabbage, parsnip, and more beets.

Day 3: Kale, Orange, Banana Smoothie 1 Orange (Peeled), 1/2 Cup Water, 1 1/2 Leaves Kale (The recipe only called for 1 leaf of kale and I should have stuck with that), 2 Ripe Bananas.

1. Blend the orange in a blender until mostly juice.
2. Add the water and kale; blend again on High speed until kale is liquefied.
3. Break the bananas into chunks and add to the blender. Start blending on a lower speed until the banana is incorporated. Increase speed to blend the mixture into a pudding-like texture.
4. Refrigerate for 20 minutes or stick the glass in the freezer. MUCHHHH better.

Servings: The website said 1. I say 2.

Rating: 3.75 out of 5 stars. I just wasn't feeling it, but it's better than most kale drinks I've tried. It really wasn't that bad, but it was really thick. Next time, I'll stick with just one leaf of kale, use only cold ingredients, add ice, and use more water. And split it with ScoobyDoo. Definitely work trying again though.

Inspiration of the Day: All Hail Kale!

Question of the Day: How do you eat your kale? Or do you at all?
Happy Juicing!
