Garden Day Recap and Kale Smoothie Recipe
Thank you to everyone who came out on Sunday for our workday in celebration of our garden’s third anniversary. We repaired a number of our raised beds and planted two varieties of sweet potatoes. Shout out to our friends at Joe’s Organics, Third Coast Coffee, and Yard to Market Coop for providing the compost, coffee grounds and chaff, and soil, respectively. Those sweet potatoes are going to be really happy! Thanks as well to Dripping Springs Ollas for providing an olla for one of our other boxes.
With an abundance of kale in our garden right now, Farmer Sue recommended taking advantage of the final days of harvest with one of her favorite snacks, the kale smoothie. After experimenting with kale from our garden and a few other signature ingredients sold in store, we created the Kale, Avocado, Ginger Smoothie! For those of you who weren’t able to taste it on our porch yesterday, here’s the recipe so you can create the magic in your own kitchen. Cheers!
Kale, Avocado, Ginger Smoothie
splash or two of almond milk
Two spoonfuls of White Mountain Organic Bulgarian Yogurt
Three tablespoons of Eden Organic Applesauce
½ an avocado
1-2 tablespoons of grated fresh ginger
1 teaspoon of lemon juice
1-2 tablespoons of honey
1-2 ice cubes
Wash your kale and cut off the stems, leaving only the leafy greens for blending. Place in a blender with the grated ginger, almond milk, yogurt, lemon juice, avocado, honey, and ice cubes and blend on high until the kale is completely blended into the smoothie.
