The other day, I found the Lipstick & Berries on Instagram, and I was smitten. Ashley’s pictures are gorgeous, and everything she eats is so healthy and vibrant. I feel more energetic and nourished just looking at her stuff! So today when I went shopping, I was inspired to pick up fresh fruit, unsweetened almond milk, Medjool dates and curly kale – to whip up a smoothie. I’d never tried sweetening with dates before. They worked great! I might not ever use anything else.
Be sure to blend this thoroughly, or you’ll have bits of kale and chunks of dates at the bottom of the glass – which is not necessarily a bad thing.
- 1 cup frozen mixed berries (or fresh berries and ice)
- 2 handfuls of curly kale
- 2-4 Medjool dates, pitted (or other sweetener of choice)
- 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk (or other non-dairy milk)
- Blend together until smooth.
