Green Juice: Kale-mato

We love a good green juice recipe around here, but juicers can be pretty pricey. This is sort of a cheater’s green juice recipe, and you can make it in your regular blender!

Green juice makes a great on-the-go snack alternative to wasteful packaged foods. It’s healthy, quick, and simple to make. You don’t need a fancy pants high speed blender to make this juice. The blender I use is one that cost $25 back in 2006. I think we got it as a wedding present. I’ve put this blender through the ringer, so if I can make this in mine, chances are your blender is also up to the task.

The other thing I like about making “juice” in the blender like this is that unlike with a juicer, you don’t lose that healthy fiber. When you properly juice kale, you lose so much of the goods! Blending it into your drink changes the texture a bit, but the health benefits are well worth it, in my opinion. Don’t worry though – this isn’t a thick drink at all. The water thins it out, and if you want it even thinner, you can add more water until it gets to the consistency you want.

Kale-mato Green Juice

Yield: 2 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 cup tomato juice
  • 1 cup kale, chopped
  • 1/2 cup water
  • juice of 2 lemons
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce (optional)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • hot sauce, to taste

Method

  1. Toss all of your ingredients into the blender, and blend until smooth. You’ll want to do a good, thorough job blending to make sure the kale gets as incorporated as possible.
  2. Chill until you’re ready to drink. If it sits, you’ll need to stir or shake it up before serving.
