I basically developed this one myself, through trying out different things. First, to save the kale as long as possible, I put some water and kale leaves into a blender and blended it all up until I could ‘pour’ the mixture into ice-trays. Once that was done, I had individual servings of kale just waiting for me in my freezer!

Ingredients:

  • 1 – Kale cube (Though mine are shaped like icebergs, Titanics, hearts, and stars… my husband’s are shaped like little skulls ;))
  • approximately 1 cup of frozen strawberries (if fresh, add some ice)
  • approximately 1/3 or 1/4 cup of blueberries (or mixture of blueberries and raspberries)
  • 1/2 cup of non-fat Greek Yogurt (if sweetened, leave out the agave) (Can also use a dairy substitute)
  • 1 Tbsp of Agave nectar

Instructions:

Blend it all up until it is as smoooth as you like, and enjoy!! You can add a little more nectar if you aren’t fond of the Kale flavor… but I have gotten used to it and love it this way! ❤

For ShakeOlogy fans, you could easily replace the Kale with a bit of Shakeology, though I have not tried the Greenberry flavor yet so I cannot vouch for its taste! ❤

Fruit popsicles

March 21, 2013

From my own head 🙂

Take as many different fruits as you would like to have in the popsicles, and clean and cut them up roughly. Throw all of the pieces into the blender, and pour in a bit of Almond milk.

Blend everything up until smooth.

Pour the mixture into shaped ice-trays (IKEA has cute shapes!), and cover tray with a layer of saran wrap. Poke toothpicks or popsicle sticks through the plastic and into the mixtures.

Freeze until solid!

Will work with your favorite smoothie recipes as well!
