This recipe is a slight variation of the Kale Mango Blueberry Melon Smoothie that I also just posted. I loved that blueberry version so I figured I’d make a slight change and substitute strawberries for blueberries. Well, once again the melon carries the day and shines through to make a gently complex smoothie that is easy to drink – for it is kale!
I’m looking forward to raspberry season so I can say that I’ve tried all the local berries that I love. Blueberries have a strong flavor and a little bit of grit form the tiny seeds, whereas strawberries add a fresh tartness yet the seeds are softer. Raspberries, I’m sure, will add a grit and a wonderful flavor for they are probably as strong as blueberries.
In any case, the strawberries are subtle and the melon stands out a bit more in this smoothie.
- Juice of ½ lemon
- 1 large mango
- 2+ cups watermelon
- 3 large medjool dates
- 2+ cups strawberries
- 1 cup rejuvelac
- 1 large bowl fresh garden kale
Stack it all in the blender and liquefy.
Once liquefied, press the kale in and blend for 60 (or more) seconds until everything is ground up thoroughly.
As you can see, I had a bit of fun with this one. Every morning I shot for about 7 cups smoothie. This morning I added just a bit too much melon so I poured it off to make a bit more room for the greens. It made for a festive glass of predominately fruit smoothie. I shot for ½ lb of greens every day and in the process get the fruit. The fruit is just there to mask the strong flavors of the greens. Every once in a while it’s nice to ‘go conventional’ and not turn all the smoothie green!
