I bought a Vitamix 3 month ago because I can’t mixed up kale very creamy for my Creamy Kale Detox Smoothie. And I like to add kale in my smoothie because kale is one of the most healthy food on the planet. Kale is pure detox food and great for detoxifying your body. But there were so many other recipes I need to try out that I forgot to mix up a kale smoothie. My kitchen looks like a recipe store for sure because I make a note wherever I get an inspiration from other recipe developers, magazines or cookbooks. It’s really hard to have less time to cook all these beautiful meals when you see your idea at every time. But life is long right? I am 34 now so I think I have a loooooot of time to cook and get creative in my kitchen.
Kale is much higher in vitamin C than most other vegetables, containing about 4.5 times much as spinach and Kale is very high in beta carotene, an antioxidant that the body can turn into vitamin A. You can use kale simply in your kitchen by adding it to your smoothies in order to boost the nutritional value.
I often use buckwheat in my breakfast instead of oats because buckwheat is the best source of high-quality, easily digestible proteins. To make it more digestible you can add half a teaspoon of apple vinegar.
Because of the high speed of my blender it is important to add frozen fruits to my smoothie to get a fresh and not a warm smoothie. For that reason I freeze my bananas regularly in small pieces. It is the perfect tip to store ripe banana the whole time.
This smoothie is really full packed of high nutritious food and to give him the last boost I add a teaspoon matcha powder. Matcha is a very rich superfood, it’s just 100% pure green tea leaves stone ground into a fine powder. If you like to get more information, check out matchamaiden.
I also love to top my smoothie with Lingonberry Powder. The Scandinavians are crazy over this berry! You find more information on: arcticpower.
