Makes 2 servings
- 2 cups green kale
- 1 cup almond milk, unsweetened
- 1 tablespoon coconut flakes, unsweetened
- 1 small banana, previously frozen
- 1/4 cup fresh or frozen pineapple
- 1/4 cup fresh or frozen mango
- 1 teaspoon powdered or fresh ginger
- 1/4 teaspoon cardamom
- 1 scoop protein powder
Makes 1 serving
- 1 large collard green leaf, rinsed
- 1/4 cup cooked quinoa
- 1/4 avocado, sliced
- 1/4 cucumber, sliced
- 1/4 cup shredded carrots
- 1 lime
Open collard leaf flat out on a plate. Spread a thin layer of cooked quinoa across the leaf.
Place the sliced veggies on top and squeeze the lime over the veggies. Tightly roll up the collard leaf until you have a neat roll.
Stick toothpicks all the way through the the roll at 1-inch intervals. Cut the roll into sections between the toothpicks. Serve the sections like mini sushi rolls with your favorite dipping sauce. Hummus is great with this!
Makes 12 bars
- 3 good and ripe avocados
- 1.5 cups lime juice
- 1/2 cup agave, light
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 pinch sea salt to taste
- 1 can coconut milk — just the milk no water
- 3 tablespoons coconut butter, melted
- 3 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
Place avocados, lime juice, agave, vanilla, salt and coconut milk in a high speed blender, and mix until fully incorporated and smooth. Add the coconut butter and coconut oil while blender is still moving. Kick into high gear and wait until silky smooth.
Pour into little tart pan or 7-by-7-inch pan. Top with crushed macadamia nuts and coconut flakes. Place in fridge to chill for 8 hours — or into freezer for 4 hours.
Garnish with a slice of fresh lime... or a teaspoon of lime zest!
