Cranberry Kale Smoothie for a Great New Year KickStart!

Instead of making resolutions (I don't usually make any), I have a list of what I'm looking forward to in the coming year. Last year has been a busy year for me and I haven't been regular on Veganlovlie. This year, I'm looking forward to...

firstly, getting organized, and donating things we don't need, clearing the space really.

learning more about photography and food styling.

working more on my handmade jewellery project.

incorporating more yoga in my routine and hitting the gym more often.

cycling around the neighborhood more often.

...and posting new varied content on Veganlovlie (stay tuned).

Happy 2012!


Now to kick start that New Year, here's a smoothie that is surprisingly much more delicious than it sounds! Definitely going to be a regular one.

A great way to make use of all the cranberries too, that are now reduced in most stores.

Cranberry and Kale Smoothie

Ingredients
a handful of kale leaves (you can rip them from the fibrous boney centre)
7 - 10 fresh cranberrries (frozen is also good)
juice from 2 slices lemon
1 banana
1/2 ripe pear
1 tablespoon agave nectar (or maple syrup, both optional)

  • Mix all ingredients in a blender. (I used a hand blender).
  • Pour and drink!

Yummy Fresh Start!

  1. This is just the inspiration I need! I keep toying with the idea of adding more green smoothies into my daily diet, but can never commit. This sounds tasty enough that it wouldn't be such a challenge. :)

  2. Mmm, that does look good! And a great way to keep smoothies seasonal, too.
