Kale is always in the RoodonFood fridge. Occasionally cooked on the stove top, most gets thrown into daily drinks . Via books like Kris Carr’s, I’ve learned that the leaves are tasty in raw, drink form and nutritious too boot (B6, C, K among others). Health books often recommend expensive juicers. If you can afford them, more power to you. We use the same 5 year old, $20 blender. After blending, we run the juice through a $6 strainer from Target.
Here is simple recipe to make roughly 36 ounces. This kale drink is thinner than most which makes it more accessible for newbies. It gives a great energy boost and is refreshing. Enjoy.
Kale Force 3000….This Time It’s Personal (Kale Drink)
2 kale leaves, washed and torn smallish
1/3 cucumber, chopped
1/4 lemon slice (remove rind)
1 drizzle honey
4 ice cubes
Throw ingredients into blender, now add water to fill to 36oz mark (the higher you fill it, the thinner the drink). Blend for a few seconds. Stir up and repeat. Strain out juice into a container. Pulp can often be run through a second time. The juice keeps well in the fridge for up to 3 days.
