Kale, Apricot, Strawberry & Raw Honey Shake
This is a great drink for the beginning of summer. The acidity of the apricots and strawberries go well together and they pair well with the bitterness of kale. The lemon cuts the kale's bitterness and we add raw honey for desired sweetness which balances out the whole drink.
Wash the Produce 3 Minutes
Place the produce together in a colander and wash with cold water. Let the water drain and dry the produce with a paper towel.
Halve the Citrus and Score a Cross in Each Half 1 Minutes
Lay the citrus on the cutting board. Slice perpendicular to the core and lay each half on the cutting board with the flesh facing upwards. Score a slice vertically and horizontally in each half. Scoring means cutting slits across the flesh. We score it to cut the rind so it squeezes more easily.
Chop the Kale 3 Minutes
Wash the kale, dry and lay on a cutting board. Stack the kale on top of each other and roll into a cigar. Slice the kale then chop it into squares. Video
