Spicy Peanut Kale Chips + Raspberry-Lemon Fro-Yo

Kale chips, never thought to make them before, but now understand why people are so crazy about them. When baked they crisp up to be like potato chips! And hello, they're green. :)
Instead of the usual salted kale chip we decided to put the thai-peanut flavours to the test and make spicy peanut kale chips! Ever since making that Thai Peanut Soup, I just can't get enough of this flavour combination.

1/4 cup + 1 tbsp peanut butter
1/2 red pepper
1/2 red chile
1 clove garlic
2 1/2 tbsp tamari
juice of 1/2 a lime
sea salt
1 tbsp ginger
1 head of dino kale

Combine everything except kale in a food processor, process until blended. De-stem kale and cut into bite sized pieces, toss with dressing. Arrange kale onto baking sheet (we needed three in total to accommodate all of our kale). Bake at 250F for 1/2 an hour or until crisped.

This has to be one of my fave breakfast/desserts: avocado with berries whizzed up to make a fluffy frozen yogurt. Seriously, where would we be without the avocado?

1 small avocado
1 pint of raspberries, frozen
1 tsp lemon zest
Squeeze of lemon
6 drops stevia, to taste
1/4 tsp vanilla bean powder

Combine ingredients in food processor, process until combined and the texture of ice cream. Top with berries, coconut, any toppings you like!

And here's one of Jenn's smoothies. It has pear, greens powder, cucumber and vanilla brown rice protein powder in it, I know, weird, but she said it tasted really good! If you haven't tried putting cucumber in your smoothies yet, try it out! It definitely "freshens" things up.


Speaking of cucumbers in smoothies...oh would you look at that? We have a recipe for one in our Inner Ecology Cookbook! Check it out!

  2. THOSE CHIPS. are glorious. I'm always too conserving with my sauce but I really need to make more so the kale can be totally covered in them. They look like they turn out way better. YUM!
