Eats: Green Smoothie9:25 AM
Look at that hipster mug! A few of you have asked about the green smoothie I posted on Instagram a little while back or, as I like to call it “Hulk Food”. I don’t really have an exact recipe for this concoction, this just falls into the “wing-it” category, but I figured what the hell, here goes:
What I typically do, is make sure I have the essentials: Kale, almond milk, ice, and fruit. From there you can add whatever you fancy, but to start, make sure you have a lot of kale. We grew a shitload of it in the garden this summer, so after I rinsed it I tore it into smaller pieces and packed it into the blender, usually a third of the blender is filled with kale. I have no idea how many cups that is, but I would say 2-2 ½ firmly packed. Next, I usually add half of a chopped orange, and a handful of blueberries. We grew a lot of mint & orange mint this year, so I have been adding mint leaves and I find this to be delicious, so you always have that option. Next, add almond milk (I use vanilla flavored), again, I have no idea how much to use, I probably use about half a cup. Then, add some ice to make it cold and blend. If it is too thick, you can add more almond milk, or even a little water. I also usually make WAY too much and leaving some in the fridge for the next day-which is okay, but it tastes better fresh.
I know that is the worst recipe ever for anything because I never measure anything and add random things as I go, so I have a few links to recipes online. You know, ones with exact measurements and people who know what they are doing.
I have been drinking these every morning and they are pretty filling, but I would also recommend eating a banana or something a few hours later so you are not starving like me. Cool Beans?
