Parsley, Kale and Berry Smoothie by Janell Rose
|April 2012 BONAPPETIT had this Smoothie Recipe and Eileen is over the moon over the recipe. She is making nearly every day. On Friday Morn. May 11, JR and I drove to Keller and parked our van to ride with Paul and Eileen to AR for Caty's graduation and bring back her furn. Paul was pulling a 17 foot trailer - it was bump, bump all the way over and back. (My rotator cuff arm has been so sore it hurts to move this past week.) Anyway - when we walked in Eileen had big smoothies waiting for JR and I - that was our breakfast and it lasted most of the day without hunger.
PARSLEY, KALE, AND BERRY SMOOTHIE (2 Servings)
Puree 1/2 cup (packed) flat-leaf parsley (leaves and stems.) 4 Kale Leaves (center rib removed.) 1 cup frozen organic berries (strawberries, raspberries, blueberries - whatever) 1 banana cut into pieces. 1 tsp. ground flaxseed. and 1 cup water in a blender until smooth (add water if too thick.) Calories 100 Fat 1 G Fiber 4 G.
Eileen varies this by using any flavor of Kifir instead of water. I have been doing the same (I am also hooked on this smoothie - JR said he Not drinking every morn.) This week I purchased a bag of the frozen triple berries at Sam's and been using them. Also frozen blueberries. Use whatever berries you have on hand. The only thing I have not added is the flax as could not find at the grocery store. Oh yes, add honey for sweeting or your substitue if you think too tart. I use honey for JR.
Thought this was a recipe we should share.
