Today’s smoothie is a bright green and it is a thick, naturally sweet, dairy-free treat. The Monday Morning Zinger gets it’s zing from Kale more than ginger because the fruit mellows the ginger nicely.

Ingredients

  • a 1/2 inch knob of ginger
  • two small ripe plums
  • two small ripe pears
  • a large handful of kale
  • a little water to help your blender about 1/2 a cup
  • Finish it off with a choice of:
    Any one of these us needed to add brightness to the smoothie.

  • a packet of EmergenC
  • a squeeze of 1/2 a lime
  • a few mint leaves
  • I took three big leaves of curly kale from our CSA, which is Lindentree CSA an organic farm share from a farm in Lincoln, MA, and at the base of the stall I gently pinched and slid my fingers to the tip of the stalk to pull the leaf off the stem. I’ll sautéed the stems later at lunch or dinner.

    I peeled and sliced the ginger. I cored and pitted the fruit and threw it l in a blender.

    I added some water and a packet of vitamin C (EmergenC) and blended away .
