- Bunch of Kale
- 1 x Citrus
- 1 x tray of Ice
- 1/4 cup Chia seed
- 1-2 tables spoons Udo’s 3-6-9
- 3-6 drops 50/50 Ginkgo \ Brahmi mix
Citrus juice is the key to changing the perceived flat earthy flavor to a tarty, spiritedly and plausible taste.
The older+mature the vegetables the more citrus required.
Critical to blending your Kale finely and quickly. Get into the habit of filling it immediately after. No ice in the morning equals no smoothie.
Tip #1: Kale, lime and ice (+water) are all you need. Other ingredients are optional.
Tip #2: Living in a group house? Make it clear – not refilling ice is punishable by a rotting wet towel flicking
Regarded as a super food and chock full of protein and good fats.
Chia turns generates gel when left to site in water. Shaking your finished smoothie later will blend the gel (omega 3 fat) and act as an emulsifier. I buy in bulk on e-bay.
Great for complexion, expensive, fridge life of 8 weeks (can be freezed) and makes one super horny.
Tip: No time to let smoothie sit? UDO’s is excellent for stopping separation making for a smooth chunkless texture
Believed by some to enhance learning and memory retention.
What evidence there is suggests taking daily to build up a residual. I took it for 7 months daily and felt it made a different but who knows? Any brain needs met were likely from high daily does of omega 3.
TIP: Save money and convenience and buy in liquid form from a natural medicine shop for approx $25 100ml (last 3-6 months)
- The Blender
Locate at your local market. I’ve use them and they work brilliantly. All moisture evaporates and the greens come out crisper then when they went in. Nano bags don’t work with bananas and tomatoes but who puts them in the fridge anyway?
Shop for a minimum 600W, Ice crushing blades, big jug (1.5L) and surge button.
I love my Sunbeam Blender Pro. Reliable and easy to replace parts. (blended my lid once….)
You won’t be drinking the amount of fibre generated in one go so you need storage.
When shopping for a bottle look for big mouth; solid grip; 1L plus; Odour and shatter resistant; made from 100% BPA free plastic; dishwasher and freezer safe.
Yep it’s right here
- Add Ice
- Add Kale
- Add Water (just under 2/3rd)
- Prime Kale
- Start Blending
- Add Lemon
- Add Chia, Udo’s oil, Ginkgo\Brahmi
- Blend for 2 minutes
Wedge Kale stalks next to ice so they touch blades.
Too little and you won’t get traction too much and the smoothie will overflow
Pump the surge button. Blades pull Kale into blades and use the ICE and water as an abrasive. Go to next step when Kale and ice is well and truly jammed into blades.
Different to video – I add subsequent ingredients while I blend. It gives me more control over observing texture. Pay close attention to the sound the blender makes as different ingredients are added. In the end it just makes the morning a little more exciting.
Roll lime\lemons to break down juice compartments for easy squirt. Don’t use juicer. One more thing to wash up.
Paying attention to texture and sound. What do you hear?
For best results let rest for 10-15 minutes then blend again for 60 seconds.
Poor into your container. Quickly wash your jug (nothing sticky here). Head out the door.
