Baby Kale Creamy Coconut Detox Smoothie

One year ago I gobbled up a  bowl of this:    Kale and White Bean Soup

My Kale saga continues this October in a much more chilled state.  This baby Kale mixes with creamy coconut and berries and blends into my favorite smoothie of the season.  Its detoxifying properties are perfect to gin up the body’s healthy state prior to those Holiday meals just around the corner.  Plus, it tastes great.  I hadn’t used any ‘baby’ Kale until now…tons of baby Spinach but not Kale.

Who would have ever thought that these beautiful delicate little leaves were related to the stuff thrown onto so many restaurant plates as an awful garnish?  It really seems like a different animal.  I’ve been nibbling on the fresh baby leaves since I got it home this week.

It mixes its sweetness in with the creamy coconut to make a rich, thick & satisfying drink, loaded with good stuff!

Baby Kale Coconut Cream Detox Smoothie

1 cup Baby Kale, 1 cup unsweetened Coconut shreds, 1 cup mixed berries (frozen), 1 cup sliced banana (frozen, about 2 medium),         2 Tbs. Fresh Ginger diced.

Soak the Coconut in 2 cups of water overnight in the fridge.  Add the soaked coconut and the soaking water to a high speed blender.  Add in all other ingredients and blend until smooth (at least 1 minute to break down the coconut)  Add additional water to for less of a ‘milk shake’ consistency.  I added 1 packet of powdered Stevia as well.

Note:  You don’t have to soak the coconut but it helps the chunks to smooth out much better with the Kale I’ve found.  If you make this one fresh without soaking, you’ll just have bits of coconut in with the mix.  Soaking it makes things much smoother is all.  So, up to you.

      You are so lucky to grow your own stuff and not wonder who’s been spraying them lately before you spend your hard earned dollars on them too! Just finished my second salad with them and I think I’m in love!

        Soon I will be in love as well because we have just about finished putting the top over our HUGE fully enclosed veggie garden (14 x 14 metres) to stop the small and furry’s from scoffing our hard slogged garden efforts. I am going to grow so much kale I will be able to swim in it like Scrooge Mcduck in his money :).
