Cooking with Seeds: 100 Delicious Recipes for the Foods You Love

This smoothie became a staple one fall when there was an excess of kale in the garden at the same time that the apples started falling from the trees. I picked kale by the truckload and made as much apple cider as I could handle. (The downside? Cleaning the juicer.) I always like to add protein to my smoothies in this case, nut butter and flax seeds so they keep me full. I can have one of these in the morning and not be hungry again until late afternoon!

  • Yield: 1 Serving


  • 2 packed cups torn kale leaves (about 4 leaves)
  • ¾ cup apple cider
  • ¼ cup Toasted Sunflower Seed and Almond Butter
  • 1 tablespoon toasted flax seeds, finely ground in a spice grinder
How to Make It
  1. Place the kale, cider, sunflower almond butter, flax seeds, and ½ cup of ice in a blender.
  2. Blend on high until very smooth, 30 seconds.
