Kale & Ginger Smoothie

Recipe Title: Kale & Ginger Smoothie (click here to go to my YouTube video of this recipe)

Recipe By: Miriam Borys
Ingredient suggestions by Devon Wolfe of Vernon, BC

Servings: 2 large smoothies

2 cups almond milk or coconut milk
1 tsp. chia seeds
1 banana
1/2 cup frozen blueberries
1/4 cup frozen or fresh fruit of choice
1/2 apple (I use the old apples what have gone soft)
1/2 cup kale - washed first and leaves removed  from stem
1 tbsp. ginger - peeled & in a chunk or grated 
1/4 cup parsley - fresh
1 tsp. turmeric
1/2 tsp. cinnamon

1 tsp. flax seeds - ground
1 tsp. flax oil or omega 3 oil

Pour almond or coconut milk into a blender & add chia seeds to allow the chia seeds to soak for 5-10 minutes. (When you soak the seeds in the milk, they expand and become gelatinous, a property that is suppose to aid digestion and contributes to their low glycemic index)
 Add all remaining ingredients and blend until chunks are liquified.
Pour into 2 large glasses and enjoy.
