Chef Abbie Jaye, also known as Chef AJ, has kindly given us permission to share her delicious and healthy smoothie recipe. A friend of mine gave me the recipe when I had mentioned wanting to incorporate kale into my diet. My friend had taken her cooking class at Chefs, Inc in West LA. If you would like to take one of her classes, see below.
- 16 ounces fresh squeezed OJ (or 1-2 fresh oranges)
- 1 bunch Dino Kale (approximately 8 ounces)
- 2 frozen, ripe bananas
- 1-2 cups frozen mango
- mint leaves to taste (optional)
In a high speed blender, blend OJ (or oranges) with Kale. until smooth. Add frozen fruit until completely blended and thick.
Note: If you would like to sweeten up the recipe Chef AJ recommends adding dates or date sugar.
Chef AJ's classes for the rest of 2008 are full, but she will be posting the 2009 schedule on her website. You can also order her Rockin' Nut Crunch via the site, another creation of Chef AJ's that my friend had raved about.
