Kale and Citrus = The Morning Tart
« on: April 16, 2009, 06:01:08 PM »
I love getting a big bag of small red grapefruits, a bag of organic lemons, and going nuts with whatever I can make from them.  I'm kind of a citrus junkie. 

Of course, any citrus lover has to be careful about acid damage to the teeth.  The best way to do this is by drinking through a straw.  I'm currently grooving on the reusable glass straws I got from glassdharma.com.

You can cut up the citrus first to de-seed it if you prefer; that's generally what I do.

The Morning Tart:

1 peeled lemon
+ 1 or 2 peeled small grapefruit
+ 1/2 or 1 whole green apple quartered with seeds removed
+ a few leaves of romaine
and as much kale as you can handle! (I like dinosaur/lacinato kale)

Yummmm....

I love grapefruit and this sounds wonderful. I bet red russian kale would be nice too.

This sounds awesome!

For some reason, unknown to me, I have stayed away from citrus in my green smoothie... until recently when I was given one with orange in it. I loved the flavor that the orange imparts. I bet it's fantastic with grapefruit as well. I'll be trying this soon.

Thank you for sharing!

I've made something very similar with oranges and it was delicious! I'll try grapefruit next time.
