Holy kale in the garbage!
Kale, and other greens, are CONSTANTLY being thrown away in my household. We will buy some, use some of it and then – oh no – too late, it has wilted and gone bad. Fail.
So, since most of my greens end up in my smoothies, I decided to freeze my kale.
WHAT? That sounds crazy! Or, it sounds totally genius and you will be thanking me for the rest of your life… or thank Little Green Dot, which is where I first saw this.
How you ask?
Well, first you need a blender and some ice cube trays (mini muffin trays work too)
I take the kale and throw it in my Vitamix (after washing, of course) – and add water.
Then I puree it till there are no chunks left (I really don’t like to eat my smoothies).
Then, get those ice trays ready and pour that mixture right in and stick it in the freezer!
Not only does my kale/greens not go bad quickly, but I can easily throw two pre-made ice cubes into my pre-made smoothie (click here to see pre-made smoothie) and blend away.
Look at this cute thing:
I realize it may sound crazy, but this has seriously changed my life and made my mornings go by so much faster. No more cutting up the kale and having to blend it for 45 hours to get it smooth every morning. It is done and I am happy.
