Greetings! I recently got some feedback about my How to Make a Basic Kale Smoothie post, of the scale-it-back variety.
In other words, What’s an even SIMPLER kale smoothie recipe, for those of us who want to ease into this?
Watch the video for the answer, or just read the following video transcript:
Hey guys, it’s Paul. The first time I ever tried to make a kale shake was in response to the Joe Rogan Podcast, where he was talking about mixing kale with celery, pear, ginger, and cucumber, and that’s it. It made my body feel really good but it didn’t taste really great. So I made some modifications. I removed the celery, for example, I added frozen pineapple chunks and a banana, and that turned it into like a delicious drink, that also made me feel really good at the same time.
So I wanna share with you just that basic concoction – that I first created when I first started doing this about a year ago – and I’m gonna show you right now. So let’s get to it!
Okay, ingredients run-through: We’ve got kale, cucumber, pineapple chunks, apple juice, a banana and ginger. Just a super basic kale smoothie.
We’re gonna start by breaking off a piece of ginger, and we’re gonna take the skin off with a spoon. Now we’re just gonna slice it up…
Now we’ll just throw in some cucumber, and a little apple juice, to get that blended. About half a cup.
Lookin’ good. Alright. Now, we’re just gonna peel this banana here, put that in there.
Put the kale in, blend that up. Alright: almost there.
We’re gonna throw in pineapple chunks for sweetness, and we are done.
All you gotta do at this point is pour it in a glass and drink it. Basic kale smoothie. Enjoy!
So thanks for watching, I hope you enjoyed this video, and it was helpful to you creating a delicious kale drink to drink for yourself, when you wanna drink something, and lemme know what you thought about it. Alright, take it easy!
