Step 1: Making the Smoothie

• 4 or 5 kale leaves
• 1/3 cucumber (approx. 1 cup)
• 1 to 2 apples (1 cup)
• 2 dates (or other sweetener)
• 1 1/2 cups ice cubes
• 3 cups liquid (water, coconut water or non-dairy milk of choice)


Kale is the main power in this smoothie. Any of the other ingredients can be substituted with celery, spinach, pears, bananas and kiwi, for example. In fact, you can even add an avocado, if you like, or fresh ginger and nuts (cashew nuts work particularly well).

First, make sure your blender is clean and that you have the lid. Assemble your ingredients and wash the vegetables.

To make the smoothie, place everything into the high-speed blender and blend for a good couple of minutes or until smooth and creamy. Taste and adjust your flavors and re-blend if necessary. Serve immediately.

If desired, a scoop or two of protein powder can be added for extra bulk.

    what are the other kinds of sweetener besides dates? I've never shopped for them before so wouldn't know how to select

    Hi Violet and thanks for your question. So raisins, apricots (perhaps mixed with cashews), or figs are ingredients that you might consider. I hope this helps Violet and thanks so much for learning with Rouxbe! Chef Kirk
