Kale smoothies and soup [ raw vegan ]

Kale smoothies and soup

To finish the “kale theme”, I’ve got three recipes, two kale smoothies and soup, so you can enjoy kale more often!

Here a few more reasons to win you over,

  • We know that kale is a powerhouse vegetable as it is, but also great to use in smoothies and juices!
  • Usually not expensive.
  • By adding it to your smoothies or juices you release all the nutrients and make them easy to absorb by the body. Rich in iron, fiber, folate, vit.A & C., anti-oxidants, magnesium, chlorophyl, enzymes and calcium. Kale has a quite riged structure so blending it brakes down the cells and makes it easy for your body, thats a good thing ;-)!, it leaves you with energy to enjoy other activities or to cleans and heal!
  • Kale works anti-inflammatory and thanks to the fosfor and fibre kale works detoxifying for the liver and intestines.
  • 2 cups of green smoothies a day provides the body with sufficient leafy greens, you can always go for more.
  • A smoothie can be a complete meal and given a extra boost by adding superfoods.
  • Kale works great in a sweet or in a savory tasting smoothie or soup, so you can experiment to find your favorite combination!
Autumn Pear & Cinnamon Smoothie,
great to celebrate the changing of the seasons and to welcome autumn! It tastes like fresh pear tart,green version 😉
  • 1 cup coconut water, worth trying, makes a smoothie so good and adds great nutrients
  • 1 pear, frozen for a thicker smoothie
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • little piece of ginger, optional
  • BIG handful of kale
  • 1 tsp. bee pollen, optional
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla powder, extract or a piece of vanilla bean
  • 1 frozen banana, sliced
Everything in the blender to make a great smoothie! My tip is to blend the kale first with the coconut water to make it extra smooth. Then add the remaining ingredients for a smooth and cold, thick smoothie.

Carob Sweet Delight Smoothie

Mmmmmm…., this one is a favorite! Carob powder is a great substitute for raw cacao, they also work great together though! It is sweeter then cacao powder and has a light caramel taste. Carob got some great qualities like a high calcium and magnesium content, Vit.A, B2 and B3, minerals like potassium, phosphorus, iron, copper and nickel, amino acids and protein. Here you can use just carob or a mix with raw cacao powder.

Kale smoothies and soup
  • 1/2  cup frozen blueberries
  • big handful of kale
  • 1 frozen banana
  • 2 Tbsp. carob powder or half/half with raw cacao
  • 1 Tbsp. mesquite powder, it has a delicious caramel-like taste
  • 1 Tbsp. goji berries
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla powder or extract
  • 1 cup coconut water
First the kale with the coconut water, then add the rest of the ingredients. You can of course add everything all at once with when using a high speed blender.
And now one without fruit, great as a savory lunch or entree.
